COVID-19 at Jamberoo Abbey

December 3, 2023 | Current News

Good morning,

Thank you for joining us for the Advent Day Retreat yesterday at Jamberoo Abbey. We would like to advise you that two of the sisters who gave the talks tested positive for COVID-19 this morning.

According to NSW health guidelines, people who have been exposed to someone who has tested covid should do the following:

  • Monitor for symptoms. If you have or develop cold or flu symptoms (runny nose, sore throat, cough, fever) stay home until your symptoms have gone.
  • Maintain physical distancing where possible and get together outdoors or in well-ventilated indoor areas.
  • Regularly wash your hands.
  • Avoid visiting high-risk settings such as hospitals, aged or disability care facilities. Don’t visit people at higher risk of severe illness for at least 7 days. If you have to visit, do a rapid antigen test (RAT) before you go and wear a mask.
  • Talk to your employer about when you should return to your workpace. This is particuparly important if you work in a high risk setting such as health, disability or aged care. Consider working from home where possible.
  • Speak to your doctor if you are at high risk of severe illness.

According to NSW health guidance, after being exposed to someone with COVID-19 you are at risk of getting COVID-19 for up to 14 days. Most people who develop COVID-19 will get symptoms in the first 7 days, however some people will develop symptoms between 7 – 14 days.

We apologise for the inconvenience. If you come as a group, please share this information to your group.

Thank you.

Kind regards,
Sr Petra
