Residential aged care facilities

Residents of aged care are at increased risk of COVID-19 infection and are more vulnerable to serious complications if they do become infected.

Staff and visitors 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.

Refer to the Industry Code for Visiting Residential Aged Care Homes during COVID-19.
