COVID-19 Update – 4 January 2022

January 2022

Tabeel Aged Care, Laidley 

We have confirmed overnight one more positive staff and one more positive resident later today. 

We have a total of 18 positive residents and 27 positive staff. 

All positive staff and residents are currently doing well. We are very grateful for the support from local businesses for helping to keep our residents entertained and engaged. This includes the local newsagency who have donated magazines and the local op shop who have donated games, books, puzzles and magazines. 

Staff and residents are in good spirits and whilst our residents are in isolation in their rooms, there is still some hallway Bingo, magnetic darts and in-room sing-alongs taking place. 

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 continue implementing our Outbreak Management Plan and COVID-19 Workforce Plan.  

The service has had a deep clean, been placed into lockdown and staff are wearing full Personal Protective Equipment.  

We are continuing to work very closely with senior representatives from the Department of Health and the West Moreton Public Health Unit to contain and manage the situation. We are very grateful for their support and partnership.

Today another resident tested positive. In total we have had 18 positive staff and 5 positive residents. I am pleased to say that one of the residents that was in hospital has returned to Trinder Park. There are two remaining residents in hospital.  


From today, these areas are no longer in strict lockdown. Residents can leave their rooms and move around more freely within their common living area.

Immanuel Gardens, Buderim

There were no more positive cases today again. 

More good news is that the staff member who recently tested positive for COVID-19 is resting at home and says they are feeling good.  

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.
