New visiting restrictions for our Randwick, Kensington & Kogarah homes

6 Jan, 2022

Dear Residents and Families/Representatives,

Currently there is an increase in COVID-19 cases across Sydney which creates a higher risk to our residents and workforce. Due to this increased risk St Basil’s will only accept essential visitors as a precaution, until further notice.


Essential-visitor requirements when visiting a resident

We will not be accepting any non-essential visitors until further notice. Requests to visit must be pre-approved by the General Manager and will only be for essential reasons including compassionate grounds.


Approved essential visitors:

  • must show evidence of a negative COVID test that’s no more than 48hrs old, PLUS
  • must have a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) performed onsite with a negative result prior to entering our home.

The other existing requirements for visiting are also in place and will be provided to you during the visitor approval process.


What if you’re not an essential-visitor?

Speak with facility administrators and management to make other arrangements such as a window visit and/or an outdoor gated visit, by appointment where possible.


Resident social outings

Social outings are currently restricted for only essential reasons. If you have any queries or needs for an outings please reach out to our home so they can conduct an initial risk assess in consultation with the resident and/or their representative.


Do you have questions?

If you have any queries or concerns, please reach out to your facility General Manager or Administrators who will be happy to speak with you.


Thank you for your support and cooperation while we care for your loved ones.


Yours sincerely,

Spiro Stavis
Chief Executive Officer
