Influenza Update 4 September 2017

Influenza

St John’s Village has, along with the rest of Victoria, experienced an unprecedented number of influenza cases this year.

As is standard procedure in the event of an influenza outbreak, St John’s immediately advised the Department of Health. We also immediately informed all residents and families and restricted normal onsite activity to limit spread of the virus.

We have since then worked closely with the Department of Health to manage the situation and have from the outset adhered to the Department’s guidelines to manage the outbreak of influenza.

The health and welfare of all our residents is a priority and, while we do still have some cases of influenza, the situation is under control.

We continue to work closely with the Department of Health.
