Current Visitor Parameters
Thank you all for your ongoing cooperation with our visiting parameters, in place to protect our residents and ensure they continue to receive the care and services they require.
A summary of the restrictions are as follows:
- No entry to anyone who has had COVID-19 within 10 days of first being tested.
- No entry to anyone who has been a close contact of COVID-19 in the last 7 days.
- No entry to anyone with fever or symptoms of acute respiratory infection (e.g., cough, sore throat, runny nose, shortness of breath) symptoms.
- Please conduct Rapid Antigen Test prior to attending facility.
- Visitors are limited to 4 people per visit within the resident’s room, so as not to exceed the density requirements, if visits of more than 4 visitors are to occur, then residents and visitors are able to access an outdoor location.
- Front doors to the facility will be open from 9am – 5pm, 7 days per week.
- Visits outside of these hours requires visitors to utilise the intercom to gain access.
- Visitors will be temperature screened on entry (temporal), any temperature >37°C will require tympanic temperature measurement. Tympanic measurements of >37.5°C will be refused entry.
- Visits are to be conducted in a resident’s room, designated visitor area or outdoors – no visits are to occur in communal areas. Where residents have a significant cognitive impairment and restriction to their room is not practicable, visiting arrangements for these residents are to be discussed with the Care Management Team to ensure the wellbeing of the resident, as well as mitigating other risks that may arise from a change to visiting location.
If you have any questions regarding these parameters, do not hesitate to speak with either Phoebe Magsanay at the War Veterans Home or Rhizza Evans at Morlancourt.
