AVACS Newsletter – Mar/Apr 2021 Edition
Message from AVACS President
Dear AVACS residents, family
members and staff,
By now, most of our AVACS residents and staff have their annual Flu vaccine and Covid 19 vaccines done. This is a great news and very important step to protect our residents and staff from severe complications of flu and Covid 19 illness.
On behalf of AVACS Board, I would like to thank you all AVACS staff for the job well done to care for our resident and to keep our residents safe. I also would like to thank you all residents and family members for your understanding and cooperation during the pandemic lockdown.
As the Covid 19 vaccine is about to roll out to phase 2a and 2b, and open to all people over the age 50 with Astra Zenica Covid vaccine, I would encourage everyone to have their vaccine as soon as possible, and continue to keep up with your good infection control by keeping social distance, wearing mask when you are going to work or visiting the residents, washing hands often and if you feel unwell with sore throat, runny nose, coughing or fever, please do not come to the
nursing home and see your GP for COVID 19 test as soon as possible.
Please be aware there have been some changes to visitors restrictions at AVACS in line with current advice from NSW Health. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Dr. David Tang
