Embracia Reservoir COVID-19 #2 progress

July 9, 2020

Dear Residents, Families and Friends

Re: Embracia Reservoir COVID-19 #2 progress

Tomorrow, 10th July, we will begin our second round of testing from 10.00am for all residents and staff.  This is the “day 11” testing and if all results are negative, we should be able to reduce restrictions at day 14, which we hope to be 14th July. However, this all depends on the success of tomorrow’s testing. We appreciate your patience and at this stage it remains that no visitors until we can formally invite you back into the home.

We are still waiting on results for two staff and one resident from our first round of testing. This is due to the current circumstances in Victoria and the high volume of testing with the subsequent delays.

Our staff have continued to practise the highest level of quality infection control protocols and have endeavoured to meet the physical, social, and emotional needs of our residents as well as keeping families, loved ones and the community connected.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we now complete yet another hurdle in our lockdown journey.  We will update you as soon as the results come in.

If you have any queries, please contact us so we may answer your concerns.

Kind regards

Sarah MacKenzie
Managing Director
