Aged care virus outbreak declared closed
The coronavirus outbreak at a Woy Woy aged care home has been officially declared closed.
The outbreak at BlueWave Living was declared over on Friday, February 25.
"This is great news and a testament to all the team here who worked hard to minimise spread and worked extremely hard over the last several weeks, at times in a very challenging environment,".
"As we had moved to opening to visitors again some weeks ago, not much will change for now in terms of visiting.
"As Covid is still very prevalent in the community, current NSW health guidelines will be followed.
"The only change we will be making is that we will no longer require bookings for family and friends to visit.
"However other measures will remain in place to help minimise risk."
Visiting hours are 10am to 4pm.
All visitors must bring a rapid test with them, and complete the test at our main entry prior to entering.
Visitors must ensure social distancing on arrival, especially with other visitors.
All visitors must be up to date with their vaccinations.
All visitors must wear a N95 mask, which will be provided, for the duration of their visit.
All visits must occur within the resident's room, or a nominated outdoor space approved by Clinical Management.
If the resident is in a shared room, staff will advise of a nominated safe location for the visit to occur.
Up to two visitors aged 12 and over may visit per day, and up to two children under 12 may also visit as part of the same group.
