Covid-19 update for Auckland residents and their families

We wanted to give you an update on the COVID-19 precautions we are taking at our Auckland villages following the new case of community transmission.
We are re-introducing masks for all care centre visits and ask that all visitors complete a temperature check, as well as filling out a health declaration.
As usual we’d ask that visitors postpone if they feel unwell, have any cold or flu symptoms or have had contact with anyone suspected of having COVID-19.
We would also ask that if you are a relative of a resident and your work in the Auckland CBD, that you postpone any visit for the moment.
And we recommend that everyone wears masks on planes and public transport as a precaution.
We’ve included a reminder of the ongoing restrictions below.
Thanks once again for all your cooperation and patience, we will be continuing to monitor the situation closely.
Rest assured we will be in touch urgently if anything changes!
