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

Dear Resident or Family Member,

COVID-19 Update – Positive Resident Cleared at Calvary Gympie Views

I am happy to inform you that our previous COVID positive resident has now been medically cleared, and there are currently no COVID positive residents at Calvary Gympie Views.

All residents are free to move around the facility and accept visitors, in line with Calvary’s Position Statement on Visiting in Aged Care. Please see below:

Information for visitors

  • Visiting hours are between 11.00am and 6.00pm, with last entry permitted at 4.30pm. This is to ensure all screening processes can be completed by our day staff.
  • There is no limit to the number of visitors allowed per resident, per day. However only two visitors are permitted at any one time.
  • Visitors will be required to complete screening requirements prior to entry and wear appropriate PPE (including face mask and shield) whilst visiting. PPE is provided by Calvary.
  • As a precaution to keeping residents safe, 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.

As always, visitation exceptions can be made for residents receiving end of life care and for compassionate visits. Please contact the home manager to make arrangements.

We will continue to monitor residents closely for symptoms of COVID-19. Thank you for your continued understanding and patience at this time.


Cassandra Schwartz,

General Manager Aged Care
