Embracia Reservoir – Joy household is now a “green zone”

October 19, 2021

Dear Residents and Families

RE: Embracia Reservoir – Joy household is now a “green zone”

We a pleased to share more good news with you all.  After our last round of tests for our Joy household, we can confirm that all results were negative to COVID-19 and as such, the Joy household joins Harmony, Peace and Happiness households as a “green zone” which is a COVID free zone!

Our final household to be cleared is our Love household which is our “red zone” which had positive COVID cases.  We have our day 13 test for that household on 21st October and after that we hope to achieve all negative results and have the whole home declared a “green zone”, meaning our residents can move freely in their households and essential care visits can resume.

At this point, the staff and four residents in the Love household that are COVID free continue to be tested every 48 hours and all keep returning negative results.

If you have questions regarding essential care visits, they are to be directed to Catrina as the Manager of the home.  Please email her at catrinab@embraciavic.com.au with any questions.

We wish to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of our staffing group who have worked in very tough conditions, having worn full PPE for a long period of time and as result have managed to contain the spread of the virus to just one area of the home and protected so many of our vulnerable elderly residents.  We are truly grateful to each of them, and the enormous work and leadership displayed by Catrina and Ariella.  For weeks they have sacrificed their personal lives, their sleep and all for their residents and their staff.  They have both operated on broken sleep and have given their all to our home and for that we are beyond grateful to these two individuals.

Stay safe.

Kind regards
