The Australian Health Protection Principal Committee has endorsed visitation guidance for residential aged care facilities with advice on visitation arrangements depending on the COVID-19 situation within the community.
Note: some jurisdictions may have more specific requirements/arrangements in place.
The guidelines include information based on a 3-tier escalation framework for residential aged care facilities on:
- restriction of entry
- care and support in regards to visitation
- visitation limitations and information
- external appointments or gatherings.
