Dear residents and families,
I am pleased to let you know that our villages in the Wellington region are open again to visitors.
The news so far has been very positive and we think it is now safe to ease back on our precautions, but there will still be some restrictions in place at Bob Scott, Charles Fleming, Malvina Major, Rita Angus and Shona McFarlane villages.
We will always take a conservative approach and we thank you for your patience!
From tomorrow (June 30) the following measures will be in place at our villages in the Wellington region:
For care residents and families:
Our care centres will remain open to visitors, but we ask that you complete a temperature check and wear a mask when you visit anyone in care.
If you have visited any places of interest in Wellington, or Australia, in the past 14 days, we ask that you refrain from visiting.
As always, if you are unwell at all, we ask that you postpone your visit.
For serviced apartment residents:
Visits to serviced apartment residents in our villages are permitted, but we ask that all visitors complete a temperature check and wear a mask for their visit.
For independent residents:
All services continue as normal, and we will keep you posted on any developments. Please, if you have any cold or flu symptoms, do not visit the village centre or anyone in care.
We encourage residents to keep a log of visits and to use the Government’s COVID-19 Tracer app.
