Anglicare Sydney is deeply saddened to announce that a resident at Newmarch House who had tested positive for COVID-19 has passed away this morning. The family has been contacted and all relevant authorities have been notified.
We extend our sincere condolences to the family for whom this is both distressing and tragic.
The incredibly contagious nature of the virus is evidenced by the fact that in the last 24 hours three staff members of Newmarch House have tested positive. They are now self-isolating. The positive test results were discovered during our daily, rigorous testing regime which is now being applied to all staff working at Newmarch House prior to the commencement of their shifts.
Anglicare Sydney appreciates the expertise being provided by infection control specialists which have been generously provided by government.
Our team are working tirelessly to contain this virus which continues to have a devastating effect on residents, families and staff at Newmarch House.
