Visitation Restrictions at Calvary Retirement Communities

While the rate of COVID-19 community transmission in Australia is stabilising, the situation continues to evolve.

Calvary Retirement Communities continues to assess and balance restrictions on general visitation to help loved ones stay connected while maintaining the safest possible environment for the vulnerable people in our care.

Restrictions on visitation are reviewed regularly. Pending any change to the COVID-19 situation, Calvary may need to reintroduce restrictions, with limited notice, to protect the safety of residents, family members, and staff.
