Welcome back! Queensland aged care open to visitors

January 2021

We are officially open to visitors again on Friday 22 January 2021.

The Queensland Chief Health Officer has directed that the ‘restricted areas’ designation of eight local government areas be lifted from Friday.

This means visitors are welcome back at Tabeel aged care (Lockyer Valley Region), Trinder Park aged care (Logan City), St Paul’s aged care (Moreton Bay Region) and Zion (City of Brisbane).

We look forward to seeing you again!

Who can visit?

There are no restrictions on the number or ages of people who can visit.

However, just as a reminder, you cannot visit an aged care service if you:

  • Have been overseas in the past 14 days
  • Have been in a declared Hotspot (currently Greater Sydney) in the last 14 days
  • Have had contact with someone who has COVID-19
  • Have symptoms of COVID-19

When can you visit?

To follow the Chief Health Officer’s Aged Care Direction (No. 22), the following procedures are still in place:

  • Your temperature will be taken, and you will also be asked to make a health declaration.
  • Visitors are to practice optimal hand hygiene and physical distancing.

Can residents leave their aged care home for outings?

In accordance with the current Aged Care Direction, residents can again leave for any reason.
