COVID-19 Visitation Update
As an organisation, the health and safety of our residents is our priority. With COVID-19 infections increasing again both within the community and within SwanCare, Rapid Antigen Testing is now strongly encouraged for all staff and visitors. All visitors to a SwanCare residential aged care centre can collect a RAT from reception to self-test prior to entry.
If you are experiencing any cold or flu like symptoms, we recommend self-testing and ask that you do not visit until all symptoms have fully resolved.
Visiting hours for SwanCare residential aged care centres are 9am-12pm & 2pm-5pm daily with visitors limited to two people at a time. However, restrictions may be implemented quickly should a care centre have an outbreak. If this is the case, notifications will be sent via email as promptly as possible.
We would like to remind you that all visitors to SwanCare residential aged care centres must adhere to current health and safety protocols, this may include increased infection control measures during times of viral outbreak. Visitors are also required to follow the WA Government’s baseline public health and social measures:
- Provide proof of current influenza and COVID-19 (2 doses) vaccinations prior to entry
- Completion of Rapid Antigen Test strongly encouraged
- Complete health screening and sign in using visitor kiosk upon arrival
- Wear masks 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
- Visiting hours are 9am-12pm & 2pm-5pm daily
We would like to thank you for your ongoing cooperation and understanding.
