COVID-19 - Information for families of residential care facility residents

Older people are more likely than younger people to become very sick with COVID-19. If COVID-19 gets into a residential care facility it can spread easily. People who have travelled overseas or who have had contact with a confirmed case must not attend the facility for 14 days from the time they returned from overseas or last had contact with a case. People who are sick should not visit their relative in a residential care facility until they are better to prevent infections getting in and spreading to vulnerable residents.
