Embracia Moonee Valley – Updates on staff testing

August 3, 2020

Dear Residents, Families and Friends,

Re: Embracia Moonee Valley – Updates on staff testing

Following Saturday’s staff testing, we wish to inform you that we have all results, beside one pending case.  All results received for staff have been NEGATIVE. This is a great result for our staff as many of them live in hot spots as well as come to work on the frontline.  We do everything we can to keep them safe and now with stage 4 restrictions, we hope this helps keep them even safer.  We are blessed to have such amazing staff and we are truly grateful.

We found out today that we have another round of testing for residents to commence tomorrow morning.  We expect to report on results of those test 24-48 hours later, which is Wednesday and Thursday this week.

Today’s Summary:


  • 5 active cases in our home.
  • 3 residents have now recovered.


  • 3 active cases who are all stable or asymptomatic
  • 5 recovered and given DHHS clearance.

Contact Cases:

  • 5 active cases. We do not have confidence of the accuracy of this number now as DHHS has stopped reporting these cases to us.

Please keep following our Facebook page, Instagram, and our website to keep up to date as we will continue to share photos of what is happening inside our home.  Don’t forget to email lifestylemv@embraciavic.com.au to arrange a phone call, zoom call or a window visit.  Also, if you post or drop off gifts, we will ensure they are personally delivered to your loved one.

Stay safe, stay home and remember to wear your mask.

Kind regards,

Sarah MacKenzie
Managing Director
