BLUE MOUNTAINS COVID DEATHS

September 28, 2021

I want to extend my sincere condolences to the family and friends of two Blue Mountains residents who have died as a result of Covid-19

 

NSW Health announced on September 25 that a man in his 70s had passed away, while a second man in his 90s died earlier this month.

 

The younger man was a resident at the Uniting Springwood Residential Aged Care Facility. The facility has advised residents and their families that the virus was contracted outside the aged care home.

 

In early September, a Blue Mountains resident living in the Hawkesbury Living Aged Care home passed away after contracting Covid-19.

 

I have no doubt that the sympathies of the wider community are with the grieving families and friends at this time.

 

It is very sad to be speaking of losses in our community, and I want to acknowledge the work that aged care workers are doing try and reduce the spread when the virus enters a facility.
