    COVID-19 Information for our Communities

    Resthaven’s focus is on protecting the health and wellbeing of our residents and clients, along with employees and volunteers, and their families. We continue to monitor and review arrangements as information becomes available.

    On 6 February 2021, the Governor of South Australia approved a further 28-day extension of the existing Declaration of a Major Emergency under the Emergency Management Act 2004 in respect to the outbreak of COVID-19.

    Under this Act, the State Coordinator, Police Commissioner Grant Stevens, enacts the South Australian Directions that apply to everyone living in and entering, South Australia.

    A person who was in greater Melbourne between 28 January 2021 and Wednesday 17 February 2021 (other than a person who transited via Melbourne Airport until 11.59pm on 6 February 2021 and who was in a low community transmission zone for the 14 days preceding the transit) may enter or remain on the premises of a Residential Aged Care facility after receiving written confirmation of a negative COVID-19 test. Other existing requirements in the direction remain in place.

    • The Emergency Management (Public Activities No 19) (COVID-19) Direction 2020 came into effect on 17 February 2021 and revokes the Emergency Management (Public Activities No 18) (COVID-19) Direction 2021. This applies to Retirement Living and Community Services. You can view this direction by clicking here.

    We will continue to advise residents and clients about the latest government directives. This includes restrictions on visiting and activities at residential sites, and how home care services that we provide in people’s homes and service locations, may be impacted.
