    SA Health have updated their guidelines for Residential Aged Care sites in managing COVID-19 Outbreaks.

    Previously if there was a single positive case of COVID-19 in a staff member or visitor, the site was considered to be in a declared outbreak. This definition has now changed to a COVID-19 Exposure site. A COVID-19 Outbreak site is now defined as two or more positive staff members who were diagnosed at the same time, or, one positive resident.

    As a result we have reviewed our current restrictions in line with this new advice, but unfortunately at this stage, the site is still considered a prescribed outbreak site and remains under current restrictions. The primary contact for each resident will receive regular communication by SMS. Primary contacts are to notify other family members and friends.

    We continue to liaise with SA Health and the Australian Department of Health and will update the website with the latest information as soon as possible.

    We appreciate your understanding and support during this difficult time.
