What we are doing to keep our residents safe?
Blood cancer leaves people very vulnerable to infection and viruses, including COVID-19, and the Leukaemia Foundation has long prioritised heightened infection control, even before this pandemic.
As we all learn to live with COVID-19, the Leukaemia Foundation continues to review our safety measures to reduce the risk of transmission whilst also aligning with state government mandates and recommendations.
Masks are required within all of our accommodation centres, and we have a mandatory COVID-19 declaration form that must be complete by all patients and family members who check in to our accommodation centres, this risk mitigating screening method means that as much as possible we can prevent COVID-19 being bought into our accommodation centres.
We are also asking all our accommodation staff and contractors to be fully vaccinated, too.
We’d like to thank everyone living and working in our accommodation for their understanding and compliance with these measures in order to keep everyone safe.
The Leukaemia Foundation will continue to do everything it possibly can to protect those we support.
