We have been closely monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 situation and we remind all visitors and staff to remain vigilant in order to protect all our residents. As detailed at each of our facilities and in addition to the restrictions placed on entry to our facilities by NSW Health and the Visitor Access Code, we require every visitor to wear a mask at all times while in one of our facilities. We will be providing a mask on entry to our facilities once you have completed the required health check to ensure that you meet the criteria for entry.
During these difficult times, we also ask that visitors please consider limiting the number and the duration of visits in order to protect our residents.
