Cooinda Aged Care in partial lock down

January 2022

Due to a staff member testing positive to COVID-19 and another being a close contact, Cooinda is in partial lockdown. Parts of Jacaranda and Hibiscus are now closed to visitors with some residents now isolating in their rooms.

We have personally called the families of impacted residents. If you have not received a call, your loved one is not part of the lockdown, and you are welcome to visit them.

Please be assured that our team is prepared and are now implementing our Outbreak Management Plan and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) has been upgraded.

Residents and staff will be tested as advised by the Public Health Unit.

We will continue to be guided by the Public Health Unit and work closely with relevant Government agencies to contain and manage the situation.

Keeping our staff, residents and families informed in a timely manner is a priority and our COVID-19 Response Communication Plan has been enacted. Should we receive advice that your loved one tests positive, rest assured we will personally call you immediately.

Please be reassured that our highest priority is the health and wellbeing of the people in our care, and the staff who provide this care.
