Immanuel Gardens – three negative tests

August 2020

Three residents have tested negative for COVID-19 at our Immanuel Gardens service in Buderim. One more resident is awaiting results.

The three people in The Terrace experienced respiratory symptoms and were tested on Monday. The fourth person was tested late on Monday.

We will remain in close contact with family members of the residents throughout this time.

The Terrace remains closed to visitors while results are pending. This is a precaution in line with public health direction.

In accordance with established infection control processes for residential aged care, residents have been isolated and will remain under close monitoring and full care until test results return.

Our team is working with the Sunshine Coast Public Health Unit and following procedures recommended by the Department of Health and the Communicable Diseases Network of Australia.

The Vista is not closed.

Lutheran Services currently has no cases of COVID-19 at any of its 10 aged care services.
