Six hundred rest homes around the country are members of New Zealand's Aged Care Association and they're  observing alert level four restrictions to keep their residents safe.

The Ministry of Health says rest homes are permitted to operate under the lesser restrictive alert level two lockdown around New Zealand and alert level three in Auckland.

Karyn speaks with the association's chief executive Simon Wallace about what their rest homes have learned from the first time New Zealand went into lockdown and how these lessons are being applied for the current lockdown conditions.
