9 July – Lockdown update

Dear ATV friends and relatives,

Unfortunately the news this morning gives us real concern as our local area was mentioned in suburbs which have the COVID infection.

Therefore, we have made the difficult decision to go into full lockdown from 5pm Friday 9th July to 5pm Monday 12th July. This means NO person will be permitted through the front gates, unless their loved one is palliative. We have made this decision for a 72 hour period to assess the level of infection in our area.

We will revisit the situation on Monday and a further communication will be forthcoming. Can I please urge all family members and friends of ATV to maintain their compliance with the stay at home orders. I would also request that family members do not drop anything off at ATV for this period.

We will continue to provide limited slots for facilitated phone / video calls with residents. Please use our online booking system.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss the current situation.

Margaret Russell,
General Manager
