Arvida Covid Update 3 October
Hamilton moves to Alert Level 3 settings
The Government has today announced a change to settings for the Waikato district following positive cases in the community.
- Hamilton and Raglan moves from Level 2 to Level 3 from 4 October for 5 days.
The change allows contact tracing and community testing to be undertaken.
Settings at Level 3 in Hamilton
This move to Level 3 in Hamilton means bookings for visits to residents in care at Cascades are paused. Visits to residents in end-of-life care are possible by prior arrangement with the care team.
At Level 3 everyone is encouraged to remain in their household bubbles, wear a face mask and to practice physical distancing when out and about. The Unite against Covid-19 website has details on what alert level 3 means:
- Stay home and keep your bubble small. You can continue to connect with close family/whānau, enable caregiving, or support isolated people. However the extended bubble must remain exclusive
- Face coverings are now required in most indoor settings, and are recommended when out and about
- Healthcare services should use virtual, non-contact consultations where possible
Relatives can drop any essential supplies to our community gates – and we will make sure they are delivered. Please label any packages clearly.
Settings outside Auckland & Hamilton
The rest of NZ is still at Level 2, which means no change to visit and village settings currently in place.
Please if unwell or if anyone in your bubble has been at a location of interest within the last 14 days, please stay at home and call Healthline on 0800 358 5453. Follow Healthline's instructions.
Thank you once again for your support and cooperation as we respond to the requirements of the Government.
