Aged care home suffers virus outbreak

A Woy Woy aged care home has reported an outbreak of coronavirus in one of its wings.

Bluewave Living chief executive Mr Matt Downie said: "Unfortunately at The Shores, we have had a few more new cases over recent days.

"This area of BlueWave remains in effective lockdown whilst we manage this outbreak, and reduce risk of further spread.

"We continue to ask that visitors defer coming to see residents in The Shores - unless approved by the clinical management team.

"All residents who have currently tested positive for Covid have access to the Covid anti-viral medication, which has proven to be effective in minimising symptoms of Covid."

Mr Downie said: "We have had no new cases in Anzac wings now for some time, and there are currently no remaining positive cases either.

"Palm Sails wing also remains clear of any cases, as does our two Memory Support (dementia) wings.

"Visitors to any of these wings currently not impacted by Covid cases are allowed, in line with current guidelines, with a maximum of two adult visitors per day per resident.

"Other precautions remain in place such as a rapid test for all visitors on arrival and the wearing of masks.

"Visitors are not to attend at all if feeling unwell in any way, even with the mildest of symptoms of scratchy throat, headaches or runny nose.

"Visiting hours remain the same, from 10am to 4pm, seven days a week..

"Anyone wishing to book a video call, please email reception."
