Beechworth Health Service (BHS) is currently restricting access to the 52 Sydney Road site following a healthcare worker returning a positive COVID-19 result. We are working closely with the Albury Wodonga Local Public Health Unit in response to this. Our main focus now and into the future is the health and wellbeing of our residents, patients and staff. We thank the families of our residents and patients, carers and our staff for their understanding, support and patience during this time.

BHS understands that this news is likely to create concerns and questions within our community. We are committed to responding to those questions and concerns. We also ask our community to continue to work with us as we manage this current response and as we confront the challenges of COVID-19 together.

All Primary Close Contacts (PCCs) of the COVID-19 positive case continue to isolate and welfare checking is in place. Day 6 testings for PCCs will occur tomorrow and the results will then determine our ongoing management of the current response. All the people connected with the exposure remain well.
