COVID-19 Updates from Alinea's Executive Director

3 May 2021

As of 1 May 2021 the WA Government announced there are three new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Perth. Current Transitional Restrictions for Perth and Peel regions still apply, additionally – anyone from the Perth and Peel region must wear a mask inside and outside until 12.01am Saturday 8 May 2021.

As for residential aged care, from Saturday 1 May 2021 to Saturday 8 May 2021 only one person per resident per day is permitted to visit. Visitors may visit a resident on compassionate grounds although this will need to be discussed with the facility manager prior to entry. Please contact the facility you wish to visit prior to attending. A mask must also be worn at all times.


27 April 2021

As of Tuesday morning 27 April the Department of Health has reported no new local cases of Covid-19. Perth and Peel region are out of lockdown however there will be a transition period until 12.01am, Saturday 1 May and some restrictions still apply. Please be advised during this time our aged care facilities will not be not accepting visitors unless on compassionate grounds. Please contact the facility if you have any enquiries.

Ritcher Lodge and Osboine Contemporary Aged Care have now completed their Covid-19 vaccination schedule. Koh-I-Noor Contemporary Care is scheduled to receive their first dose of the vaccine on 3 May.


23 March 2021

With the gradual rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine we are pleased to advise that Ritcher Lodge and Osboine Contemporary Aged Care have received the first dose of the vaccination. Ritcher Lodge will be receiving the second dose of the vaccine this week and Osboine is expected to receive the second dose from 8 April. At this stage Koh-I-Noor Contemporary Aged Care is yet to be provided with a date for the vaccine.


19 February 2021

It is pleasing to see the Australian rollout of Covid-19 vaccination finally getting underway, with it occurring in some facilities from next Monday. We applaud the Commonwealth Government’s decision that aged care and disability residents and workers would be amongst the first to receive the vaccine. Alinea has been a supporter of the flu vaccination and similarly strongly encourages everyone able to obtain a Covid-19 vaccination. Alinea management and staff are currently assessing the requirements to ensure a smooth roll out across all facilities for both residents and staff once we are provided with a date.


14 February 2021

From Sunday 14 February, State Government directives for visitors to residential aged care facilities have been downgraded from No.6 to No.4.

Family members can visit residents however you should not visit if you have:

  • returned from overseas in the last 14 days
  • been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the last 14 days
  • a fever or symptoms of acute respiratory infection (e.g. cough, sore throat, runny nose, shortness of breath)
  • not had an up-to-date influenza vaccination.

Please refer to the Visitors to Residential Aged Care Facilities Directions No.4 for further information


8 February 2021

In accordance with the Visitors to Residential Aged Care Facilities Directions No.6 issued 5 February 2021, all Alinea aged care facilities will continue to have visitor restrictions in place until further WA State directives have been given to downgrade such restrictions. Alinea will attempt to support family members and residents by allowing visitations on compassionate grounds. These visits will be at the discretion of the facility manager.

All Alinea retail operations will re-open with current WA State directives in mind and with an effort to minimise public health risk.


31 January 2021

The State Government has announced a five-day lock down commencing Sunday, January 31, 2021 until 6pm Friday, February 5, 2021 for Perth, Peel and the South-West, due to an evolving situation with a hotel quarantine worker testing positive for COVID-19. The full announcement can be read here. In line with the WA State Directives, all Alinea Residential Aged Care Facilities will be in lockdown during this period. Visits will only be permitted for exceptional compassionate circumstances, at the discretion of the Manager.

Alinea will also be closing all retail services during this period.
