Churches of Christ in Queensland COVID-19 update

29 March, 2021

As per direction from the Chief Health Officer Queensland received this morning, from 5.00pm 29 March 2021, all residential aged care facilities in Queensland have been mandated to impose visitor restrictions. This also includes restrictions on residents leaving the service.
 
We will re-activate our remote visiting protocols so that you can continue to engage with your families and loved ones. Please speak to us about how we can facilitate contact during this time including through phone calls and video conferencing.
 
For individual discussions about visiting for exceptional and end-of-life circumstances, please contact your Service Manager directly and they can make appropriate arrangements.  
 
At this stage, we do not know how long the lockdown will be for, but will be sure to keep you updated as new information is available. The Greater Brisbane lockdown is due to be reviewed on Wednesday evening (31 March 2021).
 
Rest assured we continue to take the safety and care of our residents very seriously. All staff and visitors are screened prior to entry into our service, and all health guidelines and directives are meticulously adhered to.
 
Thank you for your ongoing understanding and support during this difficult time. We understand it is challenging, and being the lead up to Easter many visits and outings had been planned. We hope that restrictions will ease again soon, but in the meantime, know that our residents are in safe hands and we will do all that we can to protect them.
 
. If you have any questions and concerns relating to COVID-19 and Churches of Christ in Queensland, please contact communications@cofcqld.com.au.

Kind regards

Gary Edwards
