Two peas in a (visitor) pod

Nothing compares to seeing your loved ones, even if you can’t physically embrace them. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Multicultural Aged Care Services (MACS) in Geelong created an innovative ‘Live Visitor Pod’ so that relatives can visit their loved ones face-to-face.

The MACS Live Visitor Pod is a converted shipping container complete with furniture, heating and cooling. Through the smart use of perspex glass panels and cleaning protocols, the Visitor Pod allows families to visit their loved ones in person while respecting current social distancing guidelines.

The pod will be open seven days a week for 20 minute appointments, and two people can visit at any one time to protect MACS residents’ health and wellbeing. Call MACS directly on 1300 622 778 between 9:00am and 5:00pm, Monday to Friday, to make a Live Visitor Pod booking.
