Coronavirus (COVID-19) | Update for Residents and Families

Dear Resident Family Member,

RE: COVID-19 Outbreak Update for Residents and Families: Calvary Haydon Retirement Community

Further to our update earlier today, we want to inform residents and families that at the time of writing, the number of confirmed positive cases remains the same: nine (9) residents and three (3) members of staff.

With the assistance of ACT Health, the retesting of residents and staff will occur again on site tomorrow and we expect to have the results of this testing by Wednesday.

Residents and families will be notified of any additional cases as soon as we have this information. In the instance a resident returns a positive COVID-19 test, the resident, their family and doctor will be contacted directly by the facility and provided with an update on current health and wellbeing.

The retesting of residents and staff will continue at intervals as advised by the ACT Public Health Unit. A deep clean at the facility occurred today, and further deep cleans will be conducted as necessary.

We will continue to contact the listed person responsible for each resident by phone on a daily basis and email an update with any developments. You can help us to ease anxiety by please sharing this information with other family and friends.

For more information and regular situation updates, please visit www.calvarycoronavirusupdates.org.au

Our thoughts continue to be with the family and friends of the resident who sadly died on Sunday. We know many residents, families and staff will be feeling deep sadness after this news.

As the situation evolves at Calvary Haydon, please be assured that our dedicated staff are working hard to keep all residents safe from infection.

Thank you for your continued patience at this challenging time. We are grateful that families are working with us so generously to ensure the safety of your loved ones in our care.
