At SCC our highest priority is the safety and security of our residents and staff.
During the COVID-19 global pandemic, we endeavour to not only keep up to date with current NSW Health Aged Care sector guidelines, but to keep our families and friends informed with changes as they occur.
In the very unlikely event that COVID-19 appears in our region, we have plans in place.
We want to reassure all families and friends that we endeavour to keep the lines of communication open, which is why we have created this page.
