We would like to provide another update on the current COVID-19 situation at Barossa Park Lodge.
Pleasingly, a full Rapid Antigen Testing sweep this morning has returned no new positive cases. Although, there remains three active cases at the facility.
As the situation has stabilised, we are able to reduce some precautionary measures. From 12 noon Monday, 16 May 2022 the following measures are now in place for visitors and staff:
- All staff and visitors will continue to wear PPE at all times.
- Visiting times are between 10am to 12noon and 1pm to 4pm.
- Upon arrival, all visitors must complete a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT). If the RAT is negative, visitors will be asked to wear N95 masks and goggles and be escorted to the resident they are visiting. Please note, to ensure appropriate distancing, the path may be different than you might normally take.
- Visits will be limited to 1 hour (once screening process has been completed) to allow time for staff to safely process all incoming visitors. There are no limits to the number of visitor residents may have. However, visitors either providing end of life support for a resident at the facility; or providing support to a resident who is suffering from dementia or similar condition and the person is required by the operator of the facility to assist in reducing distress or confusion in the resident; may continue to visit at any time with approval of the Facility Manager.
We do thank everyone for their support and patience during the partial lockdown at Barossa Park Lodge.
We will continue to maintain regular contact with our residents’ families to update them about their loved one’s health.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the team.
