Read the joint letter to aged care providers (here).

With COVID-19 cases increasing in the current wave, we all have a role to play to protect those most at risk of severe illness.

Please remain vigilant and maintain COVID-19 safe behaviours:

  • do regular rapid antigen tests (RAT) to screen for infection
  • wear a mask if indoors to help slow infection
  • wash your hands frequently
  • stay up to date with vaccinations
  • stay home if unwell or COVID-19 positive.

Thank you for your continued hard work and dedication.
