Media Release: New Zealand Aged Care Association
Rest homes across New Zealand are moving into full lockdown effective immediately, until midnight Friday 14 August.
New Zealand Aged Care Association Chief Executive Simon Wallace says rest homes are not taking any chances.
“The experience in Melbourne where more than 100 rest homes have been affected shows the impact of not moving quickly.“
The lockdown means no visits will be allowed and no staff will be able to move between facilities.
This a precautionary measure and the situation will be reassessed on Friday.”
