A Launceston Aged Care facility has had no newly confirmed influenza cases in about a week. 

Aldersgate Kings Meadows has not reported any new influenza cases since Thursday, September 7. 

The aged care facility’s chief executive Andrew Kinnersly said staff were dealing with a number of confirmed cases, but no new incidents. 

Eleven Aldersgate residents tested positive for influenza A last week.

Some residents have been isolated, visitors have been minimised and unwell staff have been instructed to stay at home.
