Covid 19 Update Aug 23



Tēnā koutou everyone

The good news on Friday didn’t last long. We now have 4 cases of Covid positive residents in our Dementia unit (Kowhai).  

We will keep the facility open for visiting. If you choose to visit the Dementia wing you will need to dress in full PPE gear which we have location outside the Kowhai entrance.  Please do not take Kowhai residents for a walk outside the unit.

We are aware of recent changes to Covid and Mask wearing. We are waiting on Te Whata Ora for new guidelines around this in aged care. In the meantime can we ask you to continue wearing masks while visiting our facility because it is the best way to protect our vulnerable residents while promoting family/ whānau engagement. 

Finally, thank you all so much for your ongoing support for our efforts as we continue to navigate this tricky virus!
