Covid-19 guidelines

2 Dec 2021

See the latest guidelines and changes to our services during COVID-19 Protection Framework changes.

We’ve put together some guidelines to help you navigate our services in the new normal.

We want to make sure that you, your whanau and family and your whole community has safe and convenient access to healthcare. As a healthcare provider, Habit Health is dedicated to ensuring our communities receive the best care possible. Please read on to learn about some of the changes you can expect to see from us to meet this commitment.

How we’re keeping you safe from COVID-19

We have a responsibility to ensure that clients are not exposed to hazards while in our care. Vaccination is the best way to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and to protect those most vulnerable within our communities. That’s why starting from 16 November, you can rest assured that your local Habit Health care team is vaccinated. This move complies with the government mandate that health workers be vaccinated and includes all our community providers, clinical staff and non-clinical support teams.

When you make an appointment or visit one of our locations, we will ask about your vaccination status so that we can provide the appropriate care and treatment. We have taken steps to make sure that everyone receives optimal care. If you are yet to receive both doses of the vaccine or do not wish to share your vaccination status with us, we will still support you with additional appointment options and safety measures designed to minimise further risk to you or our team.

Please note, we are still updating our information as we learn more about the new "traffic light" COVID-19 Framework.

At Red and Orange, in healthcare, we encourage everyone to remain mindful about social distancing where practical. It is still considered good practice to wear a face mask indoors. 

Fitness Centres

At Orange, all fitness centres are open, a Vaccine Pass is required and masks are recommended when not exercising.
