The Multi-Ministry Taskforce announced calibrated adjustments in the Stabilisation Phase to prepare for a safe re-opening without compromising the wellbeing of the vulnerable members of our community. To better protect the unvaccinated who are at higher risk of infection and severe illness, Vaccination-Differentiated Safe Management Measures (VDS) will be introduced in Homes. From 29 November 2021, face-to-face visitations will resume for fully-vaccinated (“FV”) in-person visits to Orange Valley Nursing Homes.
Given the residential setting in Nursing Homes and that unvaccinated (“UV”) residents are likely to suffer worse outcomes than their vaccinated counterparts if they contract COVID-19, visits to Nursing Homes will resume only for fully vaccinated (“FV”) persons (i.e. both the resident and the visitor must be FV). For more information, please visit MOH: bit.ly/moh-nh.
Each FV resident will be allowed 3 designated FV visitors, maximum of 1 visitation per week. Non-designated FV visitors will not be allowed to enter the premises.
Only 1 designated FV visitor per FV resident will be allowed per visit per day for a maximum of 30 mins each time. The same designated FV visitor must have an interval of 10 days before their next visitation.
Pre-registration is required for designated FV visitors. Visitors are reminded to be punctual for their visit as there are limited visitor spots available per day, in compliance with MOH guidelines.
