COVID-19 Update 03 January 2022 




Today we can report that there are 26 positive COVID-19 cases in our staff and 17 residents.

All positive staff and residents are currently doing well. To date, we are seeing a very low rate of serious illness as a result of COVID-19. Tabeel residents have very high rates of vaccination and all staff are double vaccinated.  


We have been implementing our Outbreak Management Plan and COVID-19 Workforce Plan. We are blessed with a strong onsite team at Tabeel overseeing our response.

We are working very closely with senior representatives from the Department of Health and the West Moreton Public Health Unit to contain and manage the situation. These representatives have been attending our daily Outbreak Management Team meetings providing regulatory guidance as well as practical assistance such as securing adequate workforce and personal protective equipment. We are very grateful for their support and partnership. 


Today our residents got some extra treats with ice cream and juice being the highlight. Our lifestyle team have supplied activity packs which they can use in their rooms. Our Chaplain has been delivering daily prayers and reflections.  


We would like to acknowledge and say a special thank you to our Tabeel care staff and all Lutheran Services staff for their hard work and dedication as we navigate this situation.  


We will continue to phone the nominated contact of the positive residents every day and continue our daily updates on this website.

We are still waiting on some test results and will update our residents, families and staff when they come through. 

Immanuel Gardens continues to be locked down to visitors. 


Contacting COVID impacted sites 


Please continue to phone the service directly. However, please be aware should our office telephones be overwhelmed with enquiries, we have established a temporary 24/7 overflow contact centre to ensure your calls are always answered. This centre will be able to receive your call and answer most of your general queries. Should you need more personal information on how your loved one is going they will be able to take a message and ensure someone calls you back. 


If required, we may phone nominated contacts to provide a timely update. This may come from a number you do not recognise.
