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.

It's also a time when you are increasing your independence and making decisions for yourself. Making good decisions about when and how you sleep – like having a regular bed time and wake-up time – can improve your mood, energy, and performance.

Find out how much sleep you need, and how to make the most of the sleep time you have.
