Lockdown Update

Dear ATV friends and relatives,

As you would be aware, the Premier has announced today an extension of the lockdown in the Greater Sydney area to 16th July 2021. To protect our residents, we will need to also keep to our current visitor restrictions as advised by NSW Health. Our alternative communication methods to contact your loved ones will continue during the extension of lockdown. Let’s hope that everyone does the right thing and we can come out of lockdown next week!

The Chief Health Officer specifically requested that anyone living or working in the Fairfield, Canterbury-Bankstown or Liverpool local government areas, limit their movements and strictly adhere to the stay at home orders. This means no socialising, visiting other people’s homes, or any other non essential activities. We would request that you keep to your homes unless it is imperative that you leave for essential purposes. Our staff have also been counselled that, whilst they are counted as essential workers and can come to work, they too must limit their movements going to and from work.

Please be aware we are constantly monitoring our residents for any signs of anxiety in lockdown and will contact you immediately if we feel there is an issue. If you feel that you meet the criteria for visiting on compassionate grounds, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Thank you to families who have been in touch with us to pass on their appreciation to staff for all they are doing.

Thanks

Margaret Russell,
General Manager
