The Queensland Government announced today (Wednesday 5 August) that from 1am Saturday 8 August, people from NSW and the ACT will not be allowed enter the state.

Based on this, we have made the difficult decision that effective immediately, we will be restricting visitors to your home if:

  • they are from interstate or
  • they live in or have travelled to Brisbane, Logan and Ipswich.

Exceptions will be made for end of life care in consultation with service managers.

Community (in-home) Aged Care

Our in-home aged care staff visiting your home are following best-practice and taking all necessary measures to protect your health and safety. They will not visit you if they are unwell and will be tested for COVID-19.

If you are at all concerned please talk with your service manager or phone Blue Care on 1300 258 322.
