We provide exceptional aged care in an intimate community that feels like home.
The Victorian Department of Health and Human Services have issued a statement today declaring that Greater Brisbane will be designated a red zone under Victoria’s travel permit system from 6.00pm.
This means that anyone who has entered Victoria from Greater Brisbane must immediately self-quarantine, get a coronavirus test and remain isolated for 14 days from the day you entered Victoria.
You have probably heard the new strict and severe lockdown coming into effect for all of Victoria from 11.59pm tonight for hopefully only 5 days. Unfortunately, this does feel like DeJa’Vu for all of us Victorians, however, it is important that we inform you of the rules we must all comply with for both Embracia Reservoir and Embracia Moonee Valley.
It is not the way we wanted to start 2021, however, it is important that we implement the new directives sent to us by DHHS in relation to visitation to all Aged Care homes. From today at both Embracia Reservoir and Embracia Moonee Valley, we will revert back to 1 person visiting, once a day and for a maximum of 2 hours. Residents receiving end of life care are excluded from these rules and we encourage you to have regular conversations with our management teams regarding your visiting rights. We apologise for any inconvenience, but we must put our resident’s safety first.
We want to start by wishing each of you a happy new year and thank you for your ongoing support throughout 2020, but it’s not over yet… In light of the recent NSW clusters and now Victoria having new community COVID-19 cases, we need your help more than ever. Please DO NOT visit either Embracia Reservoir or Embracia Moonee Valley if you have been in Greater Sydney, Northern Beaches, Blue Mountains, Wollongong or now the 3 new areas in Victoria; Mitcham, Mentone or Hallam. If you have been to any of these areas or any of the listed locations on DHHS website, then please do the right thing and stay away from our homes for 14 days and get tested. We need your support to keep our residents and staff safe and to ensure we do not face any more lockdowns, 2020 was hard enough and we want 2021 to be a COVID safe and COVID free new year. Staying away helps keep our people safe, so please play your part.
