Important information about IRT Greenwell Gardens
Aged Care Centre

13 January 2022

Dear family member/resident representative,

I am pleased to let you know that all COVID-19 tests on residents yesterday in Callala House and Comerong House are negative.

The results of the COVID-19 tests are pleasing, however we must continue to act in accordance with advice from the Public Health Unit (PHU) to ensure we are doing everything we can to reduce the risk of transmission at the centre.

We continue to operate in consultation with the PHU, and they have advised that residents of Comerong House will be tested again for COVID-19 on Monday 17 January. We are awaiting for further advice on testing for residents in Callala House, and I hope to be able to provide you with an update on this tomorrow.

Our resident who has tested positive for COVID-19 continues to be cared for by our staff and is stable with some mild symptoms. Staff will continue to monitor the resident and remain in contact with their family.

All other residents at the centre remain well and are not displaying any symptoms of COVID-19. Our staff continue to support isolating residents with a range of activities to ensure their comfort and entertainment.

No visiting at the centre

A reminder that the care centre remains closed to all visitors.

If required, essential visits for compassionate reasons will be arranged by the Care Manager.

Our staff will also be available to assist residents to connect with family members and friends via video and phone calls. Please let your Care Manager know if you would like us to coordinate this.

Thank you for your ongoing support and cooperation.

Yours sincerely,

Richard Walsh
Acting EGM – Aged Care Centres
