COVID-19 Update

Vigilance must remain paramount as we continue to navigate COVID-19 challenges.

We are all in this together and we must all work together to protect the vulnerable in our society from Coronavirus.

We recommend that you ‘Do the Three’: wash your hands, practice social distancing and download the COVIDSafe  app.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Director of Nursing or Executive Manager at your home and they will be happy to help you.

We will get through this together.

NSW update

Due to the ongoing threat of COVID-19 in New South Wales (NSW) we have decided to continue the precautionary lockdown at all our NSW homes until Wednesday, August 5.

This decision has been made to keep our residents and our staff safe and well. We understand how difficult it is to not see your loved ones while our NSW homes are in lockdown and we thank you for your ongoing patience and understanding.

Our residents remain safe and happy and we wish to reassure you that we are preventative and we are prepared.

Hall & Prior management continues to closely monitor local COVID-19 outbreak clusters.

Community spread poses the greatest opportunity for COVID-19 to enter one of our homes, so we must remain vigilant.

The NSW Government has directed that some staff in some locations must wear a mask while working in an aged care facility. We have made the decision to extend this requirement to all staff and anyone entering our homes in NSW (with the exception of our homes in Grafton and Gosford).

We have secured an ample supply of masks and have taken this step to protect not only our residents but also our staff.

WA update

Our homes in Western Australia are safe at present but we must remain on high alert to COVID-19.

We will continue to screen visitors into our WA homes and as ask that you stay away if:

  • you have travelled overseas in the past 14 days, or are a close contact of someone who has travelled overseas in this time period;
  • you have symptoms associated with COVID-19, and/or a temperature of greater than 38 degrees;
  • you have not had a 2020 influenza vaccination, should one be available;
  • you have travelled from Melbourne or interstate and are required to be in isolation for 14 days. Please advise the Director of Nursing/Executive Manager if you have travelled from interstate.
