Updated COVID-19 restrictions - as at 8 January 2021

All Aged Care facilities in Brisbane and Logan are in lockdown as per Queensland Health directive. This took effect at midnight Friday 8th January.

The latest community case of COVID transmission is the UK strain and this step is a precaution – there are no cases or suspected cases at SPC. Unfortunately this means no visitors are allowed into the facility. At this stage there is no clear indication as to how long the arrangement will last.

At this time we should all be aware of the alerts being circulated by Queensland Health. The details are as follows:

A positive COVID-19 case has been identified in a quarantine hotel employee who was unknowingly infectious from 2 January 2021 to 6 January 2021, and who visited the below locations during this time.

  • Train from Altandi Station, Sunnybank to Roma Street, Brisbane – Saturday 2 Jan, 7am
  • Train from Central Station, Brisbane to Altandi Station, Sunnybank – Saturday 2 Jan, 4pm
  • Woolworths, Calamvale North – Sunday 3 Jan, 11am-12pm
  • Coles, Sunnybank Hills – Tuesday 5 Jan, 7:30am-8am
  • Nextra Newsagent, Sunnybank Hills Shopping Town – Tuesday 5 Jan, 8am-8:15am

If you have visited any of the above locations during the indicated time periods, you should arrange to get tested as soon as possible, regardless of whether you have any symptoms.

You should self-isolate until you have received the results, and even upon a negative test result, continue to monitor your symptoms and get retested if necessary.

You should also be aware that there is a stay at home order in place for people living in Brisbane, Logan, Ipswich, Moreton and Redlands for the period of 6pm Friday 8 January till 6pm Monday 11 January 2021.

 

Stay safe and as things change we will endeavour to keep you informed.

“The Word became flesh and lived among us”

(John 1:14)

 

Each year, when Christmas comes, that message is solemnly resounded as A Message of JOY and HOPE. It assures us that God has become like us as a human being and has always been with us, although this truth is sometimes obscured by the shadow of darkness. When the Corona Virus Pandemic is still spreading; when disasters, war, terror still threaten… God does not abandon us, He is there to care and comfort us through the open hearts of many…

The Management Team joining with the Sisters of St. Paul de Chartres, we would like to say a big Thank You to all our Staff, who are caring for our Residents. Especially during this time of uncertainty, you have shown how much you care and love for our residents.

With expanded thanks to all the Resident’s families and friends for you co-operate and understand during this Pandemic, especially when the lockdown accursed.

May the Birth of Jesus, our Lord, bring you lots of joy, hope, happiness and blessings.

Wishing you all

A Very Merry Christmas

&

A Happy New Year 2021
