COVID -19 UPDATE 21 DECEMBER 2020
Just a reminder that we continue following the Government’s ‘tiered’ system of response to Covid19 which is:
Tier 1 No community transmissions – few restrictions apart from screening and wearing of masks.
Tier 2 Visiting restrictions re-introduced (bookings required with limited internal visits) when we have been identified as being in a defined hotspot. Definition of a defined hotspot – rolling 3-day average of 3 locally acquired cases per day. This equates to 9 cases over 3 days.
Tier 3 Significant community transmissions – we would revert back to pod and exceptional visits only.
We should all be mindful that things can change rapidly and although we are currently in Tier 1, we will act swiftly in moving from Tier to Tier if the data indicates the need to.
We are concerned about the current situation in NSW. At this stage there are NO changes to our visitation and resident outing recommendations as per last communication, however, things may change rapidly.
PLEASE DO NOT VISIT MACS IF YOU OR A CLOSE CONTACT HAS BEEN IN GREATER SYDNEY OR THE NSW CENTRAL COAST IN THE PAST 2 WEEKS.
The next scheduled communication will be on Thursday 28th January unless the situation in NSW deteriorates and impacts on Victoria.
I trust that however you will be celebrating your festive season it will be filled with lots of laughter, good friends, family and wonderful food.
Thank you for supporting the work we do, acknowledging the way we care and how we go about our work, it means a lot to us to have your confidence, trust and support.
Take care everyone and please continue to wash those hands x 2, keep on social distancing and make sure you wear your mask!!
