Unfortunately, two elders on Level 1 at Gary Smorgon House have tested positive to COVID-19 in the past 24hrs.

As a result of this and on the advice of the Public Health Unit (PHU), Level 1 is now an outbreak site and is to remain in lockdown for 7 days. Elders and family members are being updated.

We will continue to undertake rapid antigen testing of any elder who displays any signs or symptoms of COVID-19.

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. Of course, no visits must occur if the visitor is feeling unwell in any way.

We remind and encourage the 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 winter dose, if you are eligible, and Influenza vaccine as soon as you are able.
