COVID-19 Update 9 – Changes to SIL visitor arrangements
There are currently 12 known cases of COVID-19 in Queensland.
To help protect the safety of our clients and staff, we have made the decision to restrict visitors to all Supported Independent Living (SIL) houses in Brisbane City, Ipswich City, Logan City, Redland City, Gold Coast City and Scenic Rim Regional Local Government Areas 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 3 August and will be reviewed in line with advice from Queensland Health. This precautionary measure mirrors the closure of aged care homes to visitors 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.
