COVID-19 update for Greater Sydney - Saturday 26 June, 2021

The NSW Government today declared a two-week lockdown for Greater Sydney, including the Blue Mountains, Wollongong and Central Coast.

Given this advice and the rising case numbers, effective today and until further notice, visits to our Care Communities in Greater Sydney are restricted to essential and compassionate visits. If you would like to discuss your loved one’s care, please call your Care Community directly.

We appreciate how difficult it is to be separated from loved ones. Virtual visits for family and friends are available and you’re welcome to contact us to schedule a virtual visit. You may also like to send a personal message and photos to your loved one via our website: https://www.opalhealthcare.com.au/contact-us/send-message-to-resident.

Active screening of team and visitors remains in place and anyone who has visited a potential exposure location will not be permitted to come in.  As contact tracing continues, the list of locations may change so it’s very important that you check the list regularly. The list of potential exposure can be found on the NSW Health website https://www.health.nsw.gov.au/Infectious/covid-19/Pages/case-locations-and-alerts.aspx.

Thank you for helping us to do all we can to keep our residents and team safe.
