Dear Resident and Family Members,

COVID-19 Update for Residents and Families of Calvary St Francis 

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

Consistent with Calvary’s Position Statement on Visiting in Aged Care Calvary St Francis will welcome more visitors back into the home from 04 May 2022.

  • We kindly ask that you book your visit with us for now. To make a booking, please contact 4942 7477 during business hours Monday to Friday (if you wish to visit during the weekend, please book during the week).
  • Visiting hours are from 11.00am – 1.00pm and 2.00pm – 4.00pm with last entry to the home permitted at 4.00pm. This is allow adequate time for rapid antigen testing (RAT testing) prior to entry. Once in the home, visitors may stay longer than 4.00pm.
