Covid-19 Auckland

Ryman Healthcare COVID-19 update | 1 February

Written by David King
on February 04, 2021

This is a quick note to let you know that our care centres are open again to normal visits in Northland and Auckland and life is back to normal.

This means you can visit our care centres as usual, but please check in at reception.

All activities are back to normal, and our village centres are open as usual.

We’d like to thank you all for your cooperation over the past week or so when the new community cases emerged.

After widespread contact tracing and testing turned up no new cases, we feel the time is right to resume normal visits.

We know that restricting visits can be tough on families, but we will always take a cautious approach to keep our residents safe.

Thanks also to thank our village teams for all their work to keep everyone safe.

It is a collective effort, and we couldn’t do it without everyone’s support. Thank you all!

Kind regards


Gordon MacLeod
