Ryman Healthcare COVID-19 update | 17 February 2021

Written by David King

We are delighted to let you know that life will be back to normal at our villages outside of Auckland from first thing on Thursday February 18 following the Government’s move to reduce the COVID-19 alert down to Level 1.

Thanks for your patience and understanding since we announced the COVID-19 restrictions on Sunday.

The new alert level means that all activities, events and visits are back to normal.

You will still need to check in and fill in our health declaration form if you are visiting any of our residents in care, and we ask that you postpone your visit if you are unwell.

Of course, we will be in touch again if anything changes.

Thanks for your cooperation.

Kind regards,


Gordon MacLeod
