Anglicare Sydney is very pleased to advise that today all residents at Newmarch House who had tested positive for COVID-19 have now been cleared.
This result is an enormous relief to all our families and residents.
We are grateful to the many agencies who have made this happen including supports provided by the Commonwealth Government, NSW Health, the Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District and those agencies which provided us with much needed staff when our own staff were self-isolating.
We acknowledge our staff, those from Newmarch House as well as those from other services in Anglicare who have joined our surge team. Their dedication, sacrifice, inspirational care and support have made this day possible.
Our paramount consideration is the safety of our residents, their families and our staff at Newmarch House.
There is still more work to do. We remain vigilant to ensure we maintain strict infection control protocols for all our residents at Newmarch House until the site itself is declared COVID-19 free by NSW Health.
