COVID-19 is still with us, battering countries around the world while we enjoy the freedom of Level 1 restrictions. But we all need to play a part in keeping our communities safe so we can spend time with family and friends over the much-anticipated summer break.
The disease can spread very quickly so it is essential that we all use the NZ COVID Tracer app, stay at home if you feel unwell and call Kaikōura Health if you have flu/COVID like symptoms. Please call before coming in so that the team can swab you in a COVID clinic.
If you are feeling unwell, please do not come and visit our inpatients or residents. We understand that you want to support friends and family receiving care, but it is important that our vulnerable community members are protected from this disease.
If you’re well and are visiting our Aged Residential Care facility, please enter via the deck gate and push the doorbell so staff can let you in and complete our safety checks. You will be asked to sanitise your hands when you come into Kaikōura Health and again when you leave.
Remember to keep using your Tracer app whether you are here visiting or coming to the clinic for an appointment or are out and about in the community, stay at home if you feel unwell and phone Kaikōura Health if you develop cold or flu like symptoms.
Wash hands frequently or use hand sanitiser and don’t forget to use a mask.
