Please remember, limiting our interactions with others is our best defence against COVID-19. Please don’t visit the hospital if you don’t need to. The following level 2 visitor restrictions are in place for all Canterbury DHB health facilities:

  • Visitors will be screened and asked to provide contact details upon arrival
  • Visitors who are unwell or have suspicion of COVID-19 will not be able to enter
  • Aged residential care: no visitors, however, family visits for palliative care residents who do not have COVID-19 will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Specific and detailed visitor restrictions that apply to each hospital are available on our COVID-19 page.

Fatigue: It’s not just ‘being tired at work’

Fatigue is a real issue in industries that rely on workers being mentally and physically alert.

Fatigue reduces a person’s ability to perform work safely and effectively. If you are drowsy at work you could make errors or cause an injury to yourself or someone else.

You are more likely to experience fatigue it you work long hours or at night, work in an extreme climate, or have a highly demanding or emotional job.
