In light of the escalating situation of COVID-19 positive cases identified in Sydney’s Northern Beaches, any visitors to Whiddon Hornsby must wear a mask when visiting. Staff will also be wearing masks when on site, as a precaution.

In addition, for now, any visitors or staff living in the Northern Beaches hotspot or Penrith Local Government Area will not be allowed to enter Whiddon Hornsby, as a precautionary measure. This also includes anyone who has visited any of the hotspot venues identified by NSW Health. These can be found here.

To help keep everyone safe, it is important to follow our guidelines when visiting our care homes. Please find these below.

  • Visits will need to be booked in prior to visiting a Whiddon care home – you can book your visit through the Administration team
  • Please do not visit if you have travelled from overseas in the past 14 days or to any hotspots or LGA’s as identified by NSW or QLD Health
  • Please do not visit if you have been in contact with someone confirmed to have COVID-19
  • Please do not visit if you are unwell or have been in contact with someone unwell
