IMPORTANT COVID NOTIFICATION – UPDATE 17 JULY 2021
WYNDHAM PARK HOUSE (53 KOOKABURRA AVENUE, WERRIBEE)
Dear genU participants, families, and carers of Wyndham Park House.
Following on from our communication yesterday, I wanted to provide an update to the identified close contact attending Wyndham Park House this week.
genU has been notified that the participant has now tested positive. This was infectious and attended Wyndham Park House on Tuesday 13th July from 9:00am to 3:00pm and Jamieson Way Community Centre on Wednesday 14th July from 9:00am to 3:00pm.
Wyndham Park House has been categorised as a Tier 1 exposure site. This means that anyone who attended during these times will be required to immediately isolate, get a COVID test, and remain quarantined for 14 days from the date of exposure.
The Department Health & Human Services (DHHS) will contact you directly and advise you of the next steps. Wyndham Park House has undergone a deep clean on 15th July and will remain closed until we receive clearance to reopen from DHHS.
