Jewish Care Victoria is delighted to have received advice from the Public Health Unit on Monday 24 January 2022 that the lockdown at Gary Smorgon House has been lifted. All elders and families have been notified.

Lifting of the lockdown results in a return to the visitation restrictions that were introduced by Health Minister, Martin Foley from 12 January 2022. Keeping Victorian Workers In Key Sectors Safe | Premier of Victoria. All elders and families have been notified of the visitation protocols.

Jewish Care will continue to mitigate, where we are able to, the risk of transmission in light of the growing number of COVID-19 cases and the highly infectious and transmissible nature of the Omicron variant

We thank and recognise our elders and families for their resilience during this difficult time and our staff for their commitment to continued excellence in care.
