Glanville Village – COVID-19 Visitor Restrictions
To protect our residents, workforce and the wider community amid COVID-19, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to restrict visitation to Glanville Village until further notice as follows:
- Visiting hours are from 12:00 Noon until 6:00 PM daily.
- A single household can now visit a resident in regional Victorian facilities for a maximum of 2 hours per day
- Physical distancing rules will apply which means that there is a limit on the number of people that can gather in a space. This limit is the same as for current shop spaces
- In indoor spaces, the 4m2 per person in any space will apply. This means that there will be a cap of three people in total in each of the residents’ bedrooms, one of these being the resident. All visiting will continue to be in resident’s bedrooms
- In outdoor spaces, 2m2 per person will apply
- Children under the age of 16 may now visit residents
- Hairdressers are also allowed to attend facilities in regional Victoria
- All visitors on entering the facility must have their temperature checked, wear a mask (unless they are under 12 years of age or have a medical condition that precludes them wearing a mask), sign a declaration in relation to their health and any contact with people known to have been coronavirus positive in the previous 14 days and use the hand hygiene provided on entering and leaving the residents room
- We appreciate this will have an impact on our community but ask for your patience and understanding as we try to limit the spread of COVID-19 in the community and ensure the safety of our residents and our workforce.
