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

Dear Resident and Family Members,

COVID-19 Update for Residents and Families at Calvary St Paul’s

I am pleased to inform you that no additional residents have tested positive at Calvary St Paul’s since our last communication to you in testing that occurred yesterday 19 May 2022. The active positive residents remain in isolation and are receiving care in their rooms, and we are keeping their families informed.

In accordance to Calvary’s Position Statement on Visiting in Aged Care, visitation to the home has recommenced, however, certain precautions are in place to help keep our residents, their visitors and our staff as safe as possible. Please see below:

Information for visitors during an outbreak

  • One fully vaccinated visitor per resident, per day may visit residents in the home.
  • Visiting hours will be 11.00am – 6.00pm daily.
  • All visitors will be supplied with the appropriate PPE (including face masks and shields as appropriate) to wear whilst visiting.
  • Visitors will be required to have a rapid antigen test (RAT test) before entering the home. This takes time, and we ask for your patience as we manage this important screening process.
  • Visitation exceptions may be made for residents receiving end of life care, residents who may be experiencing distress, or where a special care and support role is provided. Please speak with the home manager to discuss arrangements

We are currently liaising closely with Public Health Unit officials regarding next steps for the facility, such as possible de-isolation of Sienna wing and discussing when it is safe to remove the current visitation restrictions. We will keep you updated as information becomes available. We anticipate our next communication to you will be early next week.

Thank you for your continued understanding and patience at this time.


Sandeep Kandel,

General Manager Aged Care
