We have now received a significant proportion of the test results from yesterday’s round of mass testing on site. We continue to wait for the remaining results.

While the results from yesterday’s round of mass testing have all been negative thus far, we have been notified of three contractors who have tested positive for COVID-19 outside of our testing yesterday.

There are currently 20 active cases among residents, including seven who are receiving care in hospital. All other residents continue to receive care and support as they recover in a separate area of Wyndham Lodge.

Currently, there are 50 active cases among staff who are either isolating or in care. We continue to be in touch with them regularly and support them in their recovery. For those staff who have been deemed ‘close contacts’, they continue to isolate and be tested as a precaution.

In a joint effort with state and federal health agencies, Baptcare continues to make every effort possible to protect our residents and staff by limiting the spread of COVID-19 within Wyndham Lodge and again become a COVID-free facility as soon as possible.

We continue to communicate daily with all families of residents by telephone and email to provide them with during this challenging time.
