On 11.59pm, Sunday 17 January 2021, the government eased restrictions on visits to care facilities.
There are no longer limits on the purpose of visits, the number of visitors or the length of the visit to care facilities. Visits to people living in care facilities are no longer limited by Chief Health Officer directions.
People of any age can visit people in care facilities.
We ask that you do not visit someone in the care centre if you are feeling unwell. Stay home and get tested.
You must still wear a face mask when visiting care facilities.
The village centre amenities, including the café and hairdresser, are also now open to care residents.
The care centre must comply with the 2 square metre rule, which limits the number of people that can be in a shared communal space at the same time. Density limits do not apply in bedrooms of aged care facilities.
