The health, safety and wellbeing of our residents and staff remains our highest priority. Regis is actively monitoring Government advice and any community transmission of COVID‑19 near our Homes.
We are pleased to confirm that there are no active cases of COVID‑19 in any Regis Home across Australia at present.
Regis has rigorous plans and procedures in place to support our Homes and minimise the risk of COVID‑19 transmission. We continue to require our staff to follow infection prevention and control procedures. This includes regular touchpoint cleaning throughout the day, physical distancing, use of personal protective equipment where required and, if staff are unwell, they must stay home and get tested immediately.
Visitation to our Homes across Australia follows both Government directives and appropriate infection control measures for that location. Please contact either the Home or Regis Advice on 1300 998 100 for more information about the visitation arrangements in place for a particular site.
COVID‑19 has impacted aged care residents, families and staff across Australia. Regis continues to highlight the increased risks of COVID‑19 for older people and advocate for their needs. Our thoughts are with all aged care residents, their families and staff impacted by COVID‑19.
