Visitors aged 12 years and over must be fully vaccinated, or if under 12 years must abide by the rules below.  Where visits include a child under 12 it is strongly recommended, where possible:

  • the visit is in an outdoor area
  • the child should wear a mask
  • arrange Rapid Antigen Testing (RAT) prior to a visit.

Visits should not be in any inside communal areas.  All visitors must wear a surgical mask while visiting indoors.

Visitors are no longer required to provide evidence of having had a 2021 Influenza Vaccination.

Up to two (2) unvaccinated people may visit a resident for an end of life visit.  They must always wear a surgical masks and the visit must be solely inside the resident's room.  It is strongly recommended where possible that any unvaccinated visitor attending an end of life visitor undergo a Rapid Antigen Testing (RAT) prior to entering the facility. 

Visitors are not permitted to enter a Residential Aged Care Home if they have :

  • been to an overseas country of concern in the last 14 days

o   fully vaccinated and have received a negative PCR test 7 days or later after arrival in NSW

  • Travelled overseas as international flight crew in the last 14 days

Residents may leave the facility but must abide by the Public Health (COVID-19 General) Order 2021.

Staff are not permitted to enter an aged care facility unless they have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine. 

Staff are still required to wear a surgical mask while in a residential aged care home but are no longer required to wear googles/face shields.

All staff and visitors should continue to be aware of current locations of interest released by NSW Health.

We will continue to keep you up-to-date with any changes.
