As you are aware, there is a growing cluster of Covid-19 cases in Sydney’s northern beaches, particularly around two public venues in Avalon. While this situation is still emerging and case numbers are small, it’s important that all members of the Greater Sydney area take precautions for their own health and to help stop the spread.
In response, NSW Health has updated its directives for health care providers, including the requirement for workers providing in-home care services in the northern beaches region to use surgical masks at all times during service, and all our care team members have been made aware of this requirement.
Prestige is also taking the step of strongly recommending the use of masks for our workers, our clients and their families when in busy public areas, supermarkets, shopping centres and places of worship across the Greater Sydney area.
We also encourage you to follow established CovidSafe practices of social distancing, good hand hygiene and getting tested if you show even the mildest of symptoms. If you or any members of your household are experiencing symptoms of a fever, dry cough, fatigue, respiratory difficulties, or a loss of taste or smell, please notify our office before our care team members visit so we can work with you to ensure everyone’s safety.
