Good news.

The Not For Profit has announced the easing of restrictions at its Brompton aged care home (pictured above) in Adelaide after four employees who contracted COVID-19 during the city’s recent outbreak were cleared to leave quarantine.

SA Health officially declared the outbreak over after a seventh round of testing of residents and staff at the aged care home.

Most employees who were quarantined, either after testing positive or being identified as close contacts, have also been released.

AnglicareSA CEO Peter Sandeman (pictured right) was full of praise after the successful containment of the virus, which did not spread to any residents, crediting the collaborative effort between the aged care home, the organisation and external agencies.

 “It has been an extraordinary effort by the team at AnglicareSA Brompton, as well as those working in support of them right across our organisation,” he said.

“The support and cooperation we have received from our residents has been vital in our success and we thank them for this.”

Mr Sandeman also thanked SA Health, the Federal Department of Health, SAPOL and the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission who helped to contain the spread of the virus.
