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

Dear Resident or Family Member,

Latest update: Calvary St Martin de Porres Retirement Community

I am pleased to inform you that results from the latest round of residents’ PCR tests have now been received. All except one were negative.

Our staff are in contact with the family of the COVID-positive resident and are keeping them informed.

They and all of our residents continue to be cared for in their rooms and closely monitored for any symptoms.

We are liaising with the Hunter New England Public Health Unit regarding the next steps, testing regime and when it will be safe to lift the current restrictions on residents’ movements or to re-open the home.

We anticipate our next update to residents and families will be early next week unless there are any changes that need to be communicated before then.

In the meantime, Calvary St Martin de Porres remains closed for general visitation, except for end of life and compassionate visits. Please talk with the home manager to make specific arrangements.

Please contact the home if you wish to book a video call with your loved one via our video call service or if you have any concerns.

Thank you again for your continued understanding at this challenging time.


Bryan McLoughlinRegional CEO – NSW & QLD
