People with loved ones in Auckland care homes are being asked to be patient.

But as Auckland shifts to the new two point five alert level, care homes have been advised they can allow visitors - although some are choosing not to. First Up's Lydia Batham spoke to the Aged Care Association's Chief Executive, Simon Wallace, about the impact Auckland's alert level change will have on care homes.
