Important Changes to Visitation Guidelines in Tasmania

13 December 21

The Department of Health in Tasmania has released a set of restrictions that apply to anyone visiting an aged care facility from Wednesday 15th December 2021.

As per directions of from the Department of Health all visitors attending aged care facilities must: 

  • Be wearing a surgical mask at all times 
  • Be double vaccinated or must have received a negative COVID test in the 72 hours prior to entering (this applies to all visitors aged 28 days or older)

For more information and for a detailed list of the Department of Health aged care restrictions please visit this link Aged care facility visits | Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)

Once you have arrived at the facility you will be required to check in via our Zipline visitor check-in system by providing your contact details and proof of your vaccination status or COVID negative test results. Once successfully completed you will be provided with a sticker that you must wear at all times during your visit. 

In order to ensure the safety of our residents, visitors and staff we must remind you that we have a no sticker, no visit policy at each of our sites. If you are unable to prove your vaccination status or evidence of a negative COVID test you will not be able to enter the premises. 

We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we navigate these new restrictions together.
