Dear Residents, Wh?nau, Volunteers and Friends of Shalom Court
As you are aware, Auckland reverted again to Alert Level 3 lock down, indicating a continued high risk with COVID-19 and consequently all our conduct should reflect this risk.
Given the current community transmission, and the possibility of more new clusters emerging, we advise that the following visitation restrictions are now in place:
- Until further notice there will be no general family visits allowed.
- Only family visits for end of life/palliative care residents are allowed, but on a case-by-case basis pending approval from Management. Visits will be by appointment only and with a maximum of one family member visiting at one time.
- When visiting, it is important to follow Alert Level 3 precautions such as good hand hygiene, cough/sneezing into elbow/tissues, physical distancing of 2 metres including the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as managed by clinical staff. Please do not bring your own PPE. You will also be required to sign a Visitor’s Declaration.
We strongly encourage relatives to make use of Zoom and Skype sessions to stay in touch with your loved ones. Please arrange a timeslot with one of the Registered Nurses.
Thank you for your continued understanding in this changing and challenging environment.
Please remain safe.
