COVID-19 Update: SwanCare Tandara
We wish to provide an update on the current COVID-19 outbreak at SwanCare Tandara. We are pleased to advise all COVID-19 affected residents on Level 2 have completed their isolation period and made a full recovery. There is one remaining affected resident on Level 1 still recovering and three affected staff members currently isolating from home. As such, we can declare the outbreak at SwanCare Tandara Level 2 as resolved.
The deep cleaning of all affected areas of SwanCare Tandara Level 2 has commenced, and therefore visitations to Level 2 can recommence as per usual from today, Tuesday the 20th of June. All social engagement activities, group dining, admissions, hairdressing, and physiotherapy sessions will also resume for Level 2 residents as per usual.
We please ask visitations to SwanCare Tandara Level 1 remain limited where possible to allow the currently affected resident to fully recover and ensure there is no further spread. Exemptions for partners in care and end of life care however may be approved by the Care Services Manager, Clinical Nurse Manager or RN Team Leader.
