Rooming houses a focus for COVID


PENINSULA Health has teamed up with council to implement more infection control measures in Frankston’s rooming houses.

Nurses have attended local rooming houses to offer COVID-19 swabs to residents. Residents have also been given disposable masks, high-grade disinfectant, hand sanitiser, disposable gloves, paper towel, and bin liners.

Peninsula Health community health operations director Iain Edwards said “we’re pleased to be partnering with Frankston City Council in creating COVID safe environments.”

“Peninsula Health and Frankston City Council are continuing to work together to minimise the spread of infection and protect rooming house residents,” he said.
