Re: COVID-19 case at Yallambee Village

The latest round of COVID swab testing for residents living on the top floor of Esme Hilton House (top floor) were taken over the weekend.  There are no new residents with the COVID-19 virus.

Staff were also tested and the results we have so far are also negative.

The one resident who returned a positive result last week is doing well and is showing no symptoms at all of COVID.   

The Public Health Unit have requested one final round of testing this week and I will update the Yallambee community on the next steps once these test results are available.  Based on the availability of this information I anticipate being able to provide the next update on Friday 13 August unless anything changes between now and then.

For those of you that have emailed kind words to the resident who tested positive and her family, I have passed on your messages.   

Thank you for your support and patience.
