COVID-19 Noticeboard

Visitor Restrictions

This page was last updated 04/03/22 as per resident and representative correspondence issued 03/03/22.

Due to the short supply of Rapid Antigen Tests and limited staffing resources we can dedicate to this purpose we are unable to RAT all of our visitors. This precludes us from allowing more than two visits per day unless for End of Life or Urgent visits. If you feel there is a need for additional visitors in a day, you may lodge a request with Reception for consideration by the Outbreak Management Team – this is NOT required for End of Life visiting.

We urge visitors to consider whether their visits to areas with active COVID cases are necessary at this time. Essential visiting may continue during lockdown with additional precautions put in place for your safety and for the safety of our residents.

We ask family members to consider the risk of bringing children into Margery Cole with the increased transmission within the community, especially with childcare and school resuming. Children eight years and over will be required to wear a face mask and if they are not vaccinated may be required to undertake a RAT. Children under five are at risk as they unable to be vaccinated or wear PPE to protect themselves and others. We will not be undertaking RATs on children under five years of age.

Residents are encouraged to visit their younger relatives outside of the home.

Outbreak Management Team via  [email protected] or by calling Reception on (03) 5132 3500.
