Yesterday a COVID-19 positive test result was returned for a staff member who was working solely in the COVID-19 positive area of Newmarch House.
They are now self-isolating. It is our understanding that this staff member was asymptomatic. The positive test result was discovered during our now daily, rigorous testing regime which is now being applied to all staff working at Newmarch House.
Anglicare continues to be advised and guided by infection control specialists, generously provided by government and we are incredibly appreciative of their expertise and ongoing support.
We continue to work diligently to contain this virus which has had a devastating effect on residents, families and staff at Newmarch House.
