New CHO direction for visitors to Queensland Aged Care services

January 2021

Visitor restrictions in Queensland Aged Care

The Queensland Chief Health Officer has released Aged Care Direction number 19.

It states that if you have been in the Greater Brisbane area on or after 2 January you cannot visit an aged care service in Queensland unless 14 days have passed since you were last there.

This applies to our aged care services:

  • Immanuel Gardens, Buderim
  • St Andrews, Tallebudgera
  • Salem and Northridge Salem, Toowoomba
  • Orana, Kingaroy
  • Wahroonga, Biloela

Please note there are exceptions to these rules.  This includes prospective residents or their support persons who are wishing to tour the service, or people who are maintaining continuity of care for a resident that can’t be delivered by non-contact means – with permission of the operator.

Please call the office of your aged care service if you wish to clarify any of this information.

Sites fully restricted to visitors

In compliance with the Chief Health Officer’s Direction number 19, our other sites in Brisbane, Logan, Moreton Bay and Lockyer Valley continue to be restricted to all visitors until the Chief Health Officer advises otherwise. They are:

  • Zion, Nundah
  • Trinder Park, Woodridge
  • St Paul’s, Caboolture
  • Tabeel, Laidley

Residents at these sites also cannot leave unless they are attending a medical appointment, a funeral or other emergency.

We will update this information when the Chief Health Officer advises that these restrictions have eased.
