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

Dear Resident and Family Members,

COVID-19 Update for Residents and Families of Calvary Muswellbrook: Outbreak Declared Over 

I am pleased to inform residents and families that all tested Calvary Muswellbrook residents have received negative results from the latest round of testing that occurred on Tuesday 19 April 2022. In line with Public Health Unit advice, we now are able to declare the outbreak over, and lift some of the current visitation restrictions at Calvary Muswellbrook.

Consistent with Calvary’s Position Statement on Visiting in Aged Care, Calvary Muswellbrook will welcome more visitors back into the home from 21 April 2022. Some precautions will remain in place to help keep our residents, their visitors and our staff as safe as possible. Please see below:

Information for visitors

  • There is now no limit to the amount of visitors allowed per resident, per day.
  • Visitation hours are from 11.00am to 6.00pm with last entry to the home at 4.30pm. This is to ensure all screening processes can be completed with our day staff. Once in the home, visitors may stay later.
  • All visitors will be supplied with the appropriate PPE to wear whilst visiting as instructed by staff. Staff assist you with donning (putting on) and doffing (removing) PPE correctly.
  • 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.

Our staff will continue to closely monitor all residents for symptoms of COVID-19.

We are very grateful to our residents and families for your continued support and understanding during this challenging time, and very much look forward to receiving visitors back into the home. You can help us by sharing this information with your family and friends.


Sandeep Kandel,

General Manager Aged Care
