COVID-19 Update 16.03.2020 3.35pm

Senator Colbeck has just updated the advice to the sector today, cautioning a minimisation of visitations to aged care facilities for the sake of risk management and protection of our frail elderly.

It includes the recommendation that family and friends limit visits to residential care centres, particularly for residents already suffering from chronic illness.

'Given the risks to older Australians from COVID 19, particularly those with chronic disease and other frailties, we now recommend that residential aged care providers restrict visitor access,' Minister Colbeck said.

We will handle this sensitively and on a risk management basis, advising our families and staff accordingly.
