Bupa NZ Alert Level One Updates

Please find below the latest updates on COVID-19.

09 June - Information sent to families of care home residents. 

The move to COVID-19 Alert Level 1 announced by the Government yesterday marks a significant and welcome step for us all. New Zealand has now been 18 days free from any new COVID-19 cases, and we no longer have any active cases in our communities.

As you would expect, this move down alert levels again has implications for our visiting guidelines at our Care Homes. The points outlined below come into effect from today, Tuesday 9th June.

Updated visitor guidelines

At Alert Level 1 most restrictions are removed and there is no requirement for physical distancing. The following guidelines are still in place:

  • We continue to ask that you do not visit if you feel at all unwell, e.g. have a temperature or have any gastro / cold / flu symptoms.
  • There will no longer be designated visiting hours.
  • Entry to the Care Home must continue to be through the main reception.
  • You will be required to sanitise your hands on arrival.
  • You will be required to provide personal details (name, phone number and the person you are visiting) for contact tracing and as agreement that you meet the requirements of our Health Declaration.
  • You will no longer be required to undergo visiting in the resident’s room or to maintain physical distancing.
  • Residents can have the option to take a Contact Tracing Form when leaving the Care Home to visit family and whānau, for completion while out.

Thank you again for understanding and for helping us maintain the safest possible environment for your loved ones in our facility. Please continue to visit the Government’s website for the most up to date COVID-19 advice.
