COVID-19 Update - Oakdale Lodge

Five participants and 1 staff at Oakdale Lodge have tested positive for COVID-19. If your family member tests positive, we will contact you directly.

After two years, we know much more about COVID-19 and how to manage it.

The most important thing is that we keep our staff and participants safe. We are working with Public Health to make sure this happens.

Also, we:

  • have implemented our COVID-19 plan, including a lockdown of The Lodge
  • have personal protective equipment (PPE), like N95 masks, available for staff
  • have rapid antigen tests for staff and participants at The Lodge
  • will keep supporting participants at The Lodge
  • will keep you updated as things change.


What you can do

To help us protect everyone at The Lodge, don’t visit until it is safe. We will tell you when you can visit again. It will be at least a week before you can visit.

If you would like a video chat with your family member, contact The Lodge staff and they will set this up with you.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email covid19@livetasmania.org, or contact your coordinator if you are a family member of a resident at The Lodge.
