Due to the positive test for COVID-19 of a staff member reported in an aged care facility in Ashfield, the Columbia Executive has conducted a risk assessment and made the decision to close the following facilities to visitors:-
Acacia Centre (located in Marrickville)
Strathdale Centre (located in Strathfield)
The No Visitor restriction will be reviewed again on Monday 27th July 2020 and all Residents, Family and Friends will receive an update by 1pm.
Visitor bookings for Friday 24th through to Monday 27th July will have priority for video or phone calls.
We understand how disappointing this is for the Residents, Family and Friends of our Centres and thank you for your patience and support during this time.
Our priority is the safety of the Residents in our care and our staff.
Thank you again as we all navigate this challenging time.
