Results from our 5th Round of Testing

September 24, 2020

Dear Residents and Families,

Re: Results from our 5th Round of Testing

We are pleased to inform you that from yesterday’s testing at Embracia Moonee Valley, we received 100% NEGATIVE results for residents and staff.  This is the best result we could ask for and we thank our staff and management team for their tireless commitment, passion and dedication they bring to each shift 24/7, all working to keep our residents and staff safe.

We send our thoughts and condolences to the family of a resident who passed late Tuesday night.   Their doctor confirmed they passed from other medical conditions and did not believe it was a COVID related death.  Regardless, we send our love and strength to the family as it is never easy to lose a loved one.

Active Cases according to our notifications:

Residents:  13 Residents

  • Resident 1 – Day 13 (resident passed)
  • Resident 2, 3, 4 – Day 11
  • Resident 5, 6, 7 – Day 9 (One resident passed)
  • Residents 8, 9, 10, 11 – Day 8
  • Resident 12 – Day 7

Staff: 9 Staff

As we have informed you previously, we have regular operations meeting with various government and clinical authorities and we are working collaboratively with them to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our residents and staff. We still have Residential Aged Care Safety Officers attending the home daily who are supporting our staff with PPE and infection control processes.

We thank you in advance for your patience, cooperation and understanding during these challenging times. We will keep posting photos each day and keep you informed every step of the way.  Please keep following our Facebook page, Instagram, and our website to keep up to date.

Take care and stay safe.

Kind regards,

Sarah MacKenzie
