Numurkah Residential Aged Care Outbreak Stood Down
A special thank you to our Karinya staff who worked so hard to manage this lengthy outbreak, also thank you to our administration and environmental teams who supported them during this time.
A great team effort by all.
Well done to Pioneers Memorial Lodge staff for keeping the COVID-19 exposure to one positive case and containing this safely. We also acknowledge the support of our residents and their families, adhering to COVID-19 restrictions during this time.
Staff and visitors in residential aged care continue to wear surgical masks and any staff, student, contractor or visitor to residential aged care will be asked to undertake daily Rapid Antigen Testing.
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect not only the health service, but the broader community as well with a number of active cases currently in the community. A reminder to follow public health advice, keep your distance – staying 1.5m apart from others, practice good hand hygiene and stay home if you feel unwell.
Free Rapid Antigen Tests are available at each NCN Health campus reception, please come and get some to take home. Testing by our staff is also available by appointment at each campus.
