Unfortunately, we have had further positive results over the past 24 hours, with the current outbreak across all three levels at Gary Smorgon House. 

We remain in daily contact with the Public Health Unit (PHU) and continue to manage the outbreak in line with their recommendations to ensure the wellbeing and safety of all elders and staff.

We will continue to undertake daily rapid antigen testing of all our elders over the coming days. Elders and family members are being regularly updated.

Our dedicated staff continue to work tirelessly to provide excellent care to our elders.

For those wishing to visit the home, there are strict protocols and we ask you to contact the home prior to visiting to ensure compliance.  Of course, no visits must occur if the visitor is feeling unwell in any way.

We ask all our community to remain hyper vigilant with sanitising, mask wearing where appropriate and remaining at home if you feel unwell. We cannot stress enough how important it is to get your COVID-19 and Influenza vaccines as soon as you are able.
