COVID-19 Outbreak Update | SwanCare Waminda

I am pleased to advise that no further residents have tested positive to COVID-19 and one of our previously affected resident has now made a full recovery. We have however had one additional staff member return a positive result so is recovering at home.

Restrictions are still in place on Level 3 to mitigate further spread and increased infection control protocols remain in place. Physiotherapy and social engagement activities remain modified to one-on-one; meal tray service being provided to residents within their rooms and hairdressing has also been ceased temporarily for residents on Levels 3 until further notice.

Visitations to Level 1, 2 and 4 can continue, however, to allow us to best manage the situation, we do request that visits be limited where possible, and all visitors are required to adhere to the increased infection control protocols including completing a RAT prior to entry and mask wearing. 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.

Thank you for your patience and ongoing support as we continue to manage this outbreak.
