INFLUENZA OUTBREAK AT GROVES HOUSE
NSW currently has strains of both Influenza A and B in circulation with many hospitals and over 50 aged care facilities reporting outbreaks in recent weeks.
Unfortunately we have had confirmed cases of influenza from residents and staff at Groves House. In order to prevent further outbreak of the condition, we have commenced quarantine procedures and have isolated all affected areas and limited communal activities.
Until the influenza outbreak is deemed over by NSW Health, ALL COMMUNITY GATHERINGS AND ACTIVITIES HAVE BEEN CANCELLED for Groves House.
If visiting the facility, all visitors are required to comply with appropriate infection control precautions including good hand washing. Symptomatic residents will be isolated and symptomatic visitors excluded until symptoms have resolved.
NO CHILDREN ARE TO VISIT THE FACILITY
