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

Dear Resident or Family Member,

COVID-19 Outbreak Update for Residents and Families: Calvary Corymbia

I am pleased to advise that the COVID-19 PCR testing conducted on residents recently has returned negative results for all residents.

As a result, the North Sydney Public Health Unit has advised that the restrictions at the home can be lifted, residents can move freely within the home effective immediately, and we can re-open to visitors from tomorrow.

Are visitors allowed?

Calvary Corymbia will reopen to a limited number of visitors from Sunday, 16 January 2022.

In line with Calvary’s recent visitor update of 29 December 2021, one single nominated visitor only will be permitted per resident during the home’s visiting hours. This is due to the continuing heightened risk of infection and will be in place until further notice.

Each family should nominate the visitor and notify the home manager of who this person is. The visitor is strongly encouraged to have obtained a booster vaccine if they are eligible.

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.

What happens now?

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

It is likely, as a precaution, that designated visitors will at some stage in the near future be required to have a rapid antigen test (RAT test) before entering the home. However, this arrangement is not yet in place.

Thank you to our residents for your cooperation during this recent exposure period. To our families, we are grateful that you continue to work with us so generously to ensure the safety of your loved ones in our care, and look forward to receiving visitors back into the home.
