COVID-19 UPDATE

14/12 COVID19 UPDATE

Hello Carinya Community

Aged Care Direction #15 came into effect yesterday and the changes they bring are as follows:

The Direction has been updated so that:

• Visitors, staff and volunteers can enter a residential aged care facility if they have been in a safe travel zone / country in the past 14 days.
Currently only New Zealand is a safe travel zone country.

• Facilities are required to keep contact details for a minimum of 30 days and a maximum of 56 days.

• A person may enter a facility if they are awaiting the result of a COVID-19 test taken for a surveillance testing obligation, and meet all other requirements under the Direction.

Further details are available at the below link.

Thank you and all the best for the coming weeks.
David Osborne
Chief Executive Officer
