COVID 19 Update 21 October 2021
Current cases in Greater Geelong & Surfcoast as at 21/10 -240, Vaccination rates for the COGG – 1st vaccination >95% and 2nd vaccination 74.6%.
As restrictions start to ease from tomorrow midnight, I am sure that it will be wonderful to be able to catch up with family and friends at home. I would just encourage everyone to be extra vigilant over the coming months, where case numbers are expected to rise and there is a higher risk of infection with more movement in the community. We are awaiting the release of our directions from the Government regarding visitation and will advise you as soon as we have these. From the Current Victorian Government Regional Roadmap, visiting restrictions will remain in place until we reach 80% double vaccinated 16+ years.
For the moment pod visits will remain in place until we advise further.
Timetable for Pod visits for the next ten days between 10.00am–11:30am and 1.00pm-3.00pm:
Friday 22 October Borrela House & Gerda’s House
Saturday 23 October Mary Costa House
Sunday 24 October Annie O’Malley House
Monday 25 October Borrela House & Gerda’s House

We ask that all families adhere to one pod visit per resident per day for fairness to all our residents and families.
In preparation for when visitors will be able to come into the facility, please start sending in your vaccination certificates to email@example.com or show your digital certificate to gate staff to log this on our system.
We ask you to be respectful of our staff. Whilst we understand your frustrations, we are following Government guidelines.
Thank you again for your support of everything we are doing to keep your loved ones safe.
Take care everyone, and please continue to wash those hands x 2, keep on social distancing, and QR coding everywhere!!
