COVID-19 UPDATES

To keep the Amber community safe and to continue to support visits you may visit your loved ones at Amber between the following times:

  • Weekdays: 10:00am – 7:30pm Monday to Friday
  • Saturday 11:00am – 3:00pm
  • Please book your visit using the booking link or by phoning Selina Executive Assistant.

Please support the following steps to assist us in maintaining resident and staff safety

  • All visitors must undertake Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) before each visit.
  • We have enough available RATS to support two visits per resident per week
  • Our pharmacy is trying to source RAT tests for our visitors that can be purchased at $15.00 per test.
  • High protection facemasks (D95 or similar) plus eye protection must be always worn by all visitors.
  • Social distancing must be maintained.
  • Visits can only take place within a resident’s room or a designated area as directed by staff.

We can only offer these visits if everyone follows the above steps and our infection control rules.

It is very important that you continue to wear your high protection facemask throughout the visit. If staff notice that your facemask has been removed – you may be asked to end your visit and leave.

Although this may seem harsh, one simple breach of infection control protocol – as minor as it may seem, can result in a widespread COVID-19 outbreak and lives being lost.

Video and phone calls can continue to be booked via Nicole our lifestyle co-ordinator.

What happens if I test positive as part of the visitor screening?

Routine screening does sometimes pick-up positive cases, even in those that don’t have any symptoms. With the community transmission of COVID-19, there is a possibility that you may test positive in the weeks or months ahead.

If this happens onsite as part of our routine visitor screening, we will provide you with information and you will need to report your positive test to SA Health within 24 hours and isolate.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me on 0433607791
