Infection Control

Keeping everyone safe at Lutheran Aged Care Albury

It’s important that our consumers, visitors and staff are safe and well at all times. We encourage safe visitation practices so you can connect with your loved one as often as possible.

Site screening

You may be asked to complete a Rapid Antigen Test upon entry and where this policy is in place, it will be a condition of your entry to any facility. Everyone will be screened upon arrival and should be prepared to answer questions about their health, such as if you have experienced any Influenza symptoms recently as well as having your temperature taken. If you return a temperature higher than 37.5°C, you will be asked to leave and return when you are symptom free.

Please do not attempt to visit if you feel unwell or are displaying any symptoms.
