It has been exciting to see and experience the impact of restrictions easing in our community and services. The return of visitors to our aged care facilities was such an important and welcome step. Thank you to staff and community members who ensured this transition was smooth and safe. As we begin to resume our activities in the community and adjust to what COVID-normal looks like, please be aware of what you are doing, how you are doing it, and how it might impact on you, your loved ones and our community.

We have high vaccination rates in our communities and it’s important not to panic if/when we get positive COVID-19 cases in our communities. Please keep doing what you know works – get your COVID-19 vaccination if you haven’t already, wear a face mask, regularly use hand sanitiser, keep social distancing, and check-in using the QR code at every place you visit. Keep doing these things and continue to keep the people you love safe.
