Dear Family and Friends of New Haven Farm Home,
With the current spike in Covid-19 cases occurring in NSW it is necessary to ensure we do all we can to limit any potential exposure.
NSW Health have provided the following update to Disability Services that will be reviewed on the 23rd December. This includes:
- ALL visitors to residential disability care facilities across NSW are excluded unless they meet one of the exemption categories (that is, visitors who are performing essential caring functions or where there are exceptional circumstances)
- ALL staff and exempted visitors must wear a surgical mask while in a residential disability care facility.
We are aware this may impact your plans to see your family or friend, however, we thank you for your support in helping us to adhere to these guidelines set in place to keep everyone safe and well.
Please be assured that any essential visitors on New Haven Farm Home sites will have their details recorded and their temperature taken and recorded as per our standard practice. Our staff are also recording their temperature upon arrival.
Anyone who feels unwell, has cold like symptoms or symptoms similar to that of covid-19 are not to attend our premises but are advised to attend the nearest testing centre and seek medical advice.
We are encouraging the use of video call and telephone contact to ensure New Haven Farm Home clients can keep in contact and close communication with their family and friends during this time.
Again, thank you for your support, if you have any questions or concerns I encourage you to contact either myself or your Site Manager.
