No restricted areas in Queensland

September 2020

Following two weeks of no new COVID-19 cases in the greater Brisbane and West Moreton areas, the Queensland Chief Health Officer has directed that these areas no longer be classed as restricted areas.

This means that residents at the following sites are again able to receive visitors:

  • Trinder Park at Woodridge
  • Zion Aged Care at Nundah
  • St Paul’s at Caboolture
  • Tabeel at Laidley
  • Clients at Karawatha House at Woodridge

All of our other aged care services also remain open to visitors.

When you can visit

Please call the service to enquire about visiting times.

To follow the Chief Health Officer’s Aged Care Direction (No. 10), the following procedures are still in place:

  • A maximum of two people can visit a resident at the same time.
  • Your temperature will be taken, and you will also be asked to make a health declaration and provide proof of 2020 flu vaccination.
  • Visitors are to practice optimal hand hygiene and physical distancing.

Residents leaving the service

In accordance with the current Aged Care Direction, residents can leave their home for a few reasons including to:

  • Receive or access health care
  • Attend a small family gathering
  • Undertake exercise
  • Attend a funeral

Larger resident group outings are still not permitted.

Retirement Living

The communal retirement living facilities at Trinder Park, St Paul’s and Tabeel are now able to be re-opened.

 

Keeping up with the latest

Please be assured that currently there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at any Lutheran Services aged care site.

We will continue to provide residents and their nominated contacts with information about any changes either by SMS, phone calls from our Lutheran Services Call Centre, or email.  We will also be placing updates on our website.

Thank you all for your continued understanding and assistance as we strive to maintain a safe and healthy environment for your loved ones and all of our residents.
