Covid-19 media release 24/03/2020

Tuesday 24, March 2020


As the situation with the spread of the COVID-19 virus continues to escalate, we have made the difficult decision to lock down our Glynde and Hope Valley residential care homes. This effectively means that from 9 am tomorrow we are:

• stopping all visitors to our residential care homes, including family and friends;
• postponing visits from non-essential external service providers;
• introducing temperature screening for Agency staff and external service providers including GPs.
Essential visits, such as those from general practitioners and dentists, will continue at this stage where a telehealth consultation is not appropriate.

Please see attached file for further information.
