Important information about IRT Greenwell Gardens Aged Care Centre

15 March 2024

Dear family member/resident representative,

Thank you for your continued support as we manage the risk of COVID-19 at your loved one’s aged care centre.

We are caring for one resident with COVID-19 in Crookhaven House. The resident has moderate symptoms and has started antiviral treatment.

All residents of Crookhaven House and other residents who are close contacts of the COVID-19-positive resident had a rapid antigen test yesterday (Thursday). All results were negative and the next round of testing will be done tomorrow (Saturday).

If your loved one returns a positive result, we will let you know by phone and continue to provide you with a daily update regarding their progress.

Visiting arrangements

While we manage the risk of COVID-19 at the centre, the following arrangements apply:

  • All visitors to the centre, including children, will be asked to wear a P2/N95 mask and a face shield, including in residents’ rooms. Masks and face shields will be provided on entry.
  • In addition to the above, those visiting a resident who is considered a close contact or is COVID-19-positive will also be asked to wear additional PPE and instructed on how to dispose of it safely.

All other visiting arrangements, including the requirement to provide proof of a negative rapid antigen test result on arrival, continue to apply. You can find more information about our visiting arrangements on our website here.

Please pass this message on to others as you consider appropriate and if you have any questions please contact your Care Manager.

Thank you for your support.

Yours sincerely

Debbie Andrews
Operations Manager – Shoalhaven Aged Care Centres
