Covid-19 Level 2 update


Dear residents, families and whānau,

Our part of the country moved back into Covid-19 Alert Level 2 at 6am on 28 February. This latest move will be for at least seven days.

In the interest of protecting our residents and staff, from 28 February Enliven will restrict visitors to our homes. There are also some restrictions around where visitors to our retirement villages can go. We understand this might be difficult for some people, however we must do all we can to keep residents and staff safe.

If you have been to Auckland or had a visitor from Auckland between 16-28 February 2021 please do not come and visit for the time being.
