Only two aged care visitors a day, relatives told

Residents of a local aged care facility may only have two visitors a day, its chief executive has advised relatives.

In a social media post, Blue Wave Living chief executive Mr Matt Downie said they should co-ordinate with their own family and friends, as people would be turned away should a resident have already had two visitors for the day.

"Visitors must only visit residents in their private bedroom, or another space as nominated by staff.

"Visitors are not to interact with other residents within BlueWave, nor stay in common areas within the building."

He said visitors and staff must continue to wear a mask while in BlueWave Living and ensure social distancing is maintained at all times.

"Temperature checks and screening questions for all visitors will be required."

He said visiting hours were 9am to 4:30pm Monday to Friday, and 10am to 4pm Saturday and Sunday and public holidays.

"Please remember that video chats and phone calls remain an option."

He said video chats could be booked either email or by phone, or arranged by the residents themselves.

"We must exclude any visitors who live in a household with a person who is currently self isolating, or have been to any of the latest Covid-19 locations in NSW as listed on NSW Health website, including the northern area of the Northern Beaches, City of Wollongong, Cumberland City Council or Canterbury Ward area."
