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

Dear Resident or Family Member,

COVID-19 Update for Residents and Families at Calvary Robina Rise

Further to our last communication I am pleased to inform you that no further positive cases have been detected amongst Level 3 residents at Calvary Robina Rise. Additionally, our final COVID positive resident has been de-isolated today.

In line with Public Health Unit advice, Level 3 is now open to visitors subject to the below guidelines.

We are continuing to liaise closely with the Public Health Unit as to when the current outbreak can be declared over. We anticipate our next update to you will be in a few days time, or as more information becomes available.

Information and guidelines for visitors

  • In line with Calvary’s recent national visitor update of 29 December 2021, and due to the continuing heightened risk of infection, one nominated visitor only per resident will be permitted. This will be in place until further notice.
  • Each family should nominate the visitor and notify the home manager. The visitor is strongly encouraged to have obtained a booster vaccine if they are eligible.
  • Visitor entry to the home is between 9.00am and 5.00pm.
  • We kindly ask that visitors limit their visit to one (1) hour.
  • The visit must take place in the resident’s room.
  • The nominated visitor is required to complete screening requirements before being permitted entry to the home
  • Visitation exceptions may be made for residents receiving end of life care, or for compassionate visits. Please speak with the home manager.
  • 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.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.


Anne Marie Cassaniti,

General Manager Aged Care
