COVID-19 UPDATE

04/01 UPDATE

Hello Carinya Community

Please note that Aged Care Direction (No. 17) has been released today.

What’s changed from 1am AEST 4 January 2021?

Due to the recent COVID-19 cluster in Victoria, persons that have been in Victoria on or after 21 December 2020 are not allowed to enter a residential aged care facility unless 14 days have passed since the person was in Victoria.

Employees, contractors, students, volunteers and support persons who have been in Victoria on or after 21 December 2020 may enter a residential aged care facility if the individual obtains a negative COVID-19 test in Queensland after returning from Victoria.
The person may be requested to provide evidence of the negative COVID-19 test when entering the facility.

Regards
David Osborne
Chief Executive Officer
