Update: Peninsula View Community - Frankston South, Victoria

Posted: 8 October 2020

Baptcare can confirm that as of 8 October 2020, no new cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) have been diagnosed at Baptcare Peninsula View Community, Frankston South, Victoria.

From midnight yesterday, Wednesday 7 October 2020, Baptcare Peninsula View has moved into ‘enhanced surveillance’ as directed by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).

This means residents are now able to move freely on their own floors.

The safety, health and well-being of residents continues to be paramount. Our vigilance remains.  Zone segregation, infection control and hand hygiene protocols practiced for months now will continue.  Staff will continue to wear masks at work.

There is one contractor (who is self-isolating) who is still an active case.

All staff who have been in close contact with the impacted contractor are in self-isolation. The staff members are isolating at home and will only return when medically cleared.

We have been truly blessed during this challenging time with the genuine and unwavering support of so many in the local Frankston South community and for this we say: ‘thank you’.

We would like to thank our residents and their families for their support and understanding during this time. We would like to thank the various Australian and Victorian departments, Peninsula Health and the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission for their support.

This partnership with our local community, Victorian healthcare services, State and Federal government and all our partners has been critical over this period.
