AVACS Newsletter – May/Jun 2021 Edition
Message from AVACS President
Dear AVACS residents, family members and staff,
Currently, Greater Sydney and in particular Smithfield, where our nursing home is located, is under strict lockdowns due to the third wave of Covid 19 pandemic. This time it is more dangerous because the Delta variant is very infectious, the virus is spread by the body fluid droplets and airborne so if you are in the enclosed environment with poor ventilation or just walking closely near the infectious person then you would have a very high chance of contracting the virus.
In order to reduce the risk of transmission and avoid catching the disease, I would encourage everyone to:
1.Having your Covid 19 vaccine and flu vaccine as soon as possible.
2.Keeping social distance, stay at least 1.5 m apart.
3.Wearing mask when you are going to work or visiting the residents or going out in the community for essential reasons only.
4.Washing hands with soap or hand sanitizer often.
5.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.
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 this
Hope to see everyone very soon after the lockdowns.
Dr. David Tang
