Dear family member/resident representative
You may have heard reports of some aged care employees who attended recent mass protests and rallies in Sydney and Wollongong.
Like me you were perhaps concerned that anyone attending one of these events might without thought of the consequence, report to work soon after at one of our aged care centres.
I want to reassure you that we acted swiftly to prevent this happening, instructing any employees who attended such an event to stay away from work until they returned a negative COVID-19 test.
We simply will not tolerate behaviour that puts at risk the safety and health of our residents in any way. I am proud however of the way in which the vast majority of our staff go about their work each day to care for your loved one.
We will continue to work with all of our staff to ensure they understand the rules associated with the NSW Public Health directions.
If you have any questions or concerns about this please do not hesitate to contact your Care Manager.
Thank you for your ongoing support as we navigate all of the challenges presented by the pandemic.
