Covid - 19 Alert level service update...

Whangaroa Health Services Trust Traffic Light settings:

As with all businesses and organisations in New Zealand, in order to keep our vital health services running, we must enter the New Zealand traffic light settings from Friday 3rd December. The WHST kaupapa is that our services are open, accessible and available to all so it is with sadness that we have to move to the traffic light system, however, we also understand the importance of keeping our elders safe. We make this move remembering that this phase is not forever, this is a temporary measure and we look forward to opening to all again in the future.
