Ryman Healthcare COVID-19 update | 22 February

All Auckland villages

Great news - life can get back to normal at our villages in Auckland from first thing on Tuesday February 23 following the Government’s decision to reduce the COVID-19 alert down to Level 1.

Thanks for your patience and understanding since we announced the COVID-19 restrictions a little over a week ago.

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.

If you are riding on public transport you will need to wear a mask.

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

Thanks for your cooperation.

Kind regards,


Gordon MacLeod
