COVID-19 Outbreak Update | SwanCare Waminda

We would like to provide an update on the COVID-19 outbreak at SwanCare Waminda. We can confirm we have a total of four affected residents across Levels 1, 2 and 4. All affected residents’ families have been notified and the affected residents are being well taken care of in their rooms. Four staff members have also tested positive to COVID-19 and are isolating at home until they make a full recovery.  

Residents at SwanCare Waminda are being closely monitored for symptoms and tested every 72 hours as required. 

Visitations and movement across Levels 1, 2 and 4 are currently restricted to minimise risk and mitigate further spread. Exemptions can be made for end of life and partners in care. Physiotherapy and social engagement activities will be modified to one-on-one and meal tray service will be provided to residents within their rooms across the affected floors. Hairdressing has also been ceased temporarily until further notice.

Visitations to Level 3 remain open, however to allow us to best manage the situation, we do request that visits be limited where possible to assist us in managing this outbreak. Arrangements for telephonic and video communications can be made by contacting Waminda during reception hours.

Please be reminded all visitors must adhere to the current health and safety measures as detailed below: 

  • Complete health screening and sign in using visitor kiosk upon arrival.
  • Current influenza and COVID-19 vaccinations prior to entry is encouraged.
  • Respect all infection prevention and control (IPC) measures in place.
  • Complete RAT prior to entry. 
  • Wear a mask indoors and outdoors within residential aged care centre grounds.
  • Refrain from visiting if unwell or if you are a close contact of a COVID-19 case.
  • If COVID-19 positive, refrain from visiting for at least 7 days and until symptom free.
  • Visitors are limited to two people at a time, from 9am – 12pm and 2pm – 5pm daily.

We appreciate your understanding and thank you for your ongoing cooperation. Further updates will be provided where appropriate.
