Dear Residents, Families and Friends,
Re: Embracia Moonee Valley – Final results and testing tomorrow
We have received the final results which are negative, both for the resident and the staff member. This means that all residents in seven households, have tested negative. Therefore, seven households are COVID free. Last night, one resident from Winx with COVID-19 was transferred to hospital and today they are stable, and their symptoms are being managed effectively. The five residents remaining in Winx are currently stable and two still remain asymptomatic.
We were notified this afternoon that another staff member has returned a positive test. This test was conducted separate to all our testing which is why it is an additional count. The staff member most recently worked in Winx. At this stage they have reported that they are tracking well which is good news. So, we now have 6 active cases with residents and 7 active cases with staff who have told us that they have experienced minimal to no COVID symptoms.
Tomorrow we are conducting our third round of testing which we hope will complete this cycle of infection management. We will keep you informed of the results as they gradually come through and, like last time, we hope to receive them between 12 and 72 hours.
Please continue to stay strong and safe as we fight this together.
We provide exceptional aged care in an intimate community that feels like home.
