Covid-19:Families prepare for aged care closures

From Morning Report, 8:30 am on 1 February 2022

Families across Aotearoa are making contingency plans for relatives in aged care after an Auckland rest home's suspected close call with the highly-infectious Omicron variant.

Summerset by the Park Flat Bush was locked down when a kitchen worker tested positive for Covid-19, but all other staff and residents have since tested negative. Now other rest homes are bracing for outbreaks.
