A question to the Minister for Health and Medical Research:
  1. Considering aged care is primarily the responsibility of the Commonwealth, does NSW Health have a policy determining when it would become involved at an aged care facility?
    1. If so:
      1. When was this policy first instigated?
      2. Is the policy publicly available in a way that is accessible to families of aged care residents in New South Wales?
  2. Is infection control the only circumstance by which NSW Health would become directly involved in an aged care facility in New South Wales?
    1. If not, what other circumstances?
  3. Is there a particular threshold of infection that determines when NSW Health would intervene in an aged care facility?
  4. What preparations has NSW Health made to combat clusters in further aged care facilities?
