05/05 COVID-19 Information Update

Hello Carinya Community

Again – thank you to all of you – Residents, Family, loved ones, Volunteers and of course Staff as we have all come together over the last few weeks to keep our Residents out of harm’s way.

I am pleased to advise that we will again welcome visitors to Carinya from today, Tuesday 5th May.

With the COVID-19 crisis and a public health emergency still being declared, we need to observe some very important guidelines stipulated by the Qld Govt and these are as follows:

    • All visitors must have a current flu vaccination and you will be required to produce evidence of this when visiting.
    • Visiting will be between 9.00am until 4.30pm Monday to Friday only.
    • Please ensure you practice good hygiene and use our hand sanitizers when you arrive and leave.
    • No more than two visitors at a time.
    • Visits to be short: 30 minutes and limited to the Residents room or an open area.
    • No visiting in common areas such as dining rooms and lounge areas.
    • Persons under the age of 16 years are not able to visit unless for end of life support.
    • Please do not visit if you have not been feeling well or have a high temperature – see your doctor immediately.
    • Do not visit if during the 14 days prior to your visit you have travelled across the Qld border or you have been in contact with someone who has a confirmed case of COVID-19.

The above will allow us to be better prepared for the months ahead, for not only COVID-19 but the normal flu season as well.

Thank you for your care and understanding and I know your loved ones will be very keen to see you soon.

Chief Executive Officer
