Keeping you safe – throughout the COVID-19 pandemic Fairway remained free of the virus, not a single positive case!
As always, the health and wellbeing of all members of the Fairway Community is our number one priority. However, during this challenging time increased measures have needed to be put in place. These have included the requirement that all staff wear both face masks and face shields at all times whilst at work, increased touchpoint cleaning, changes to visitor access, the development of an outbreak management plan, the procurement of adequate supplies of personal protection equipment (PPE) just to name a few.
to the Coronavirus pandemic
Fairway Aged Care is committed to managing visitor access at our facility to ensure the utmost health and wellbeing of our residents and staff.
Accordingly management are closely monitoring latest public health directives from DHHS and the rate of transmission in the community.
In order to balance our residents’ quality of life with their safety and the safety of all connected with Fairway, in addition to DHHS directives we continue to have a number of further requirements in place.
Please help us all stay safe by practising strict hand hygiene protocol upon entering the facility, keeping 1.5 metres away from others and wear a mask covering both nose and mouth at all times (according to Vic Gov guidelines), and getting tested even if you have the slightest of symptoms. Please, if you have any symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19, DO NOT VISIT our facility.
If you have further questions about COVID-19, or know someone who doesn’t have a support network to assist them, call the Victorian Government’s Coronavirus Hotline at any time (seven days a week) on 1800 675 398. If you need a translator or interpreter service call 131 450. Also, for the latest information visit: www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/coronavirus
