Hazelhurst Has Re-opened From Wednesday 22 July
We are so happy to have re-opened our doors since Wednesday 22 July!
Our 2-day closure was a precautionary measure, and due to a ‘false alarm’, however everyone involved was relieved to learn that the person in question did not have COVID-19 and the test returned a false positive. All are safe and well!
We did take this opportunity to put in place added measures to ensure the safety of all staff and visitors, including the creation of only one entrance point to/from Hazelhurst, and a mandatory sign-in to both Hazelhurst AND the Café.
So, when you visit please be aware of a couple of changes:
- Be sure to enter Hazelhurst through the Kingsway carpark and pedestrian gate entrance only. The Talara Road entrance will remain closed from this point.
- It is a condition that all visitors check in on arrival either by scanning the QR code with your phone camera or using one of the ipads at the main entrance from the carpark. Our friendly staff will be there to assist you should you need any help.
Again, NSW Health has confirmed on Monday 20 July that the case under investigation of possible COVID-19 exposure at Hazelhurst has been deemed as a false positive test and therefore poses no threat to public health. This is welcome news, and we are grateful for the thorough and detailed testing by NSW Health that has ruled out any possible exposure at Hazelhurst.
We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Council will continue to work closely with NSW Health and follow every directive, as we all responsibly manage through this period of public health orders to mitigate the risks of COVID-19 and ensure the health and safety of our community and staff.
With so much information in the media on coronavirus cases – confirmed or under investigation - it can be overwhelming. NSW Health are the lead public health agency and we encourage all our community to refer to NSW Health website for full details including the latest case alerts, or call the National Coronavirus Helpline 1800 020 080.
