Birchleigh Aged Residential Care Centre

COVID-19 Information

Update: 15 June 2020

Moving to Alert Level 1 has resulted in a return to normal (almost) visitor protocols at Birchleigh.  

The lurking threat of a second wave of Covid-19 infections is something the aged care sector is very aware of, so we do ask that everyone continues to take a high level of infection protection precautions.  

The following guidelines now apply:

The restrictions relating to resident outings have also been eased.  We still ask that you provide a record of where the resident is going and who they will be / have been in contact with.  And please ensure that all people the resident will be in close contact with have no symptoms of influenza or other communicable illnesses.  We encourage you to take the opportunity to get out and support local hospitality and retail businesses who have been doing it tough for the past couple of months.

We appreciate that these remaining precautions are still an inconvenience, but they will be of huge benefit if we do see a recurrence of cases in this region.  In the meantime, thanks again for your understanding and cooperation with these guidelines so far.  It has made this difficult process much easier for all of us to deal with.
