Given the rapid escalation and spread of the highly virulent COVID 19 variant strain in Victoria, we have received the following official advice from the Department of Health.
As from midnight tonight, Thursday 27 May 2021, Victoria will be in full lockdown until midnight 10th June 2021.
What this means for Victorian MiCare aged care homes is that Visitor restrictions are in place with the following exceptions:
• No visitors are permitted into aged residential facilities except for end-of-life reasons
We encourage you to speak with the Manager of your home if you have any concerns and please communicate with the home directly to plan for alternative methods of communication during this time.
MiCare strongly encourages our extended community to have the COVID 19 and flu vaccinations as soon as possible noting the eligibility for the Pfizer vaccine is now available to the 40 - 49 year age group from tomorrow 28th May 2021.
We will continue to keep you updated on any developments. Please take care of yourself, each other and be compassionate towards neighbors and the community.
