Despite the number of cases of community transmission decreasing in Victoria, any level of community transmission presents an extreme risk to residential aged care. It is important to keep the number of people entering facilities to a minimum. As a result, it remains our absolute preference that virtual visits and contact via electronic means continue as the safest form of connection between residents and families.
However, we do understand the emotional strain this causes. Therefore, where face-to-face visits are essential, pre-booked visits can be arranged with effect from Thursday 1 October. Click here for details.
Please note that additional precautionary measures are currently in place at Preston Community with no visitors allowed at this time. For details click here.
The situation in Tasmania remains unchanged, and you can find the latest information and visiting guidelines here.
