On 29 July, Dr Jeannette Young, Chief Health Officer, announced three positive test results and the potential spread of COVID-19 in the Logan, Acacia Ridge and Springfield Lakes areas.
To help protect the safety of our clients and employees, we have made the decision to restrict visitors to our Supported Independent Living (SIL) houses located south of the Brisbane River to essential visitors only. Essential visitors include Centacare support workers (who are continuing with their shifts as per normal) and other essential health care workers.
This change is effective immediately and will be reviewed in line with advice from Queensland Health. This precautionary measure mirrors the closure of aged care homes to visitors in the area south of the Brisbane River outlined by Queensland Health.
We know visits are important to our clients and families however, given the current situation, we believe this precaution is in the best interest of our clients and employees. We can support our clients and families to connect with each other via phone and video conferencing.
We will continue to monitor the evolving situation closely and provide regular updates about any actions we need to take to protect the safety and wellbeing our clients and employees.
You can access the latest information and advice about COVID-19 from the Queensland Government and Australian Government.
