COVID-19 UPDATE FOR RESIDENTS FAMILY AND FRIENDS
Further to my email last Saturday this is an update on the current situation with respect to COVID-19 as it relates to our locations in South Queensland.
The last 5 days has thankfully not seen a significant jump in the number of people testing positive to COVID-19 however today there has been 2 positive results in the Gold Coast region. As a result our Melody Park facility located at Nerang is being locked down effective immediately. At this stage the Queensland Government has not yet updated the list of restricted areas to include the Gold Coast on their website (https://www.qld.gov.au/health/conditions/health-alerts/coronavirus-covid-19/current-status/restricted-areas-covid-19) however we are expecting this to occur shortly.
At present the Redlands Local Government area is still included in the list of restricted areas and as such Victoria Point remains locked down until we receive confirmation that it is safe to recommence visits via our booking system. Our sites at Caloundra and Yeppoon remain unaffected due to their being no community transmissions in their Local Government Areas at present and as such visitors are able to still make bookings to visit with their friends and family at these two sites.
As advised in my last email we had been advised that Aged Care Direction 9 was going to be updated, this has not eventuated and as such this direction remains in force. If you would like to remind yourself of the direction you can view it at https://www.health.qld.gov.au/system-governance/legislation/cho-public-health-directions-under-expanded-public-health-act-powers/aged-care.
Thank you for your patience and support as we continue to respond to the ever changing situation that this pandemic brings.
