COVID-19 update

Updated Friday 13 February 2020

The emerging virus pandemic is heightening the importance of clear measures to protect Abel Tasman residents. Here is an outline some of our processes and recommendations to keep them safe.

From today, visitor access can only be facilitated by ATV staff. Please push the red button at the gate to request entry.

  • Don’t forget to enter your details on the Entry Sheet – it is essential for us to maintain entry records.
  • Regular hand washing is rigidly enforced for everyone and facilitated by additional dispensers, including at the visitor check-in.
  • While, at this stage, we are not undergoing a lock-down of the facility, we advise all visitors to please not attend Abel Tasman Village unless you are confident of your own  health status and are prepared to take personal hygiene measures.

Of course there are many sources of information about the virus and its spread:
We recommend the National Corona Virus Health Information Line on 1800 020 080 – If you require translation, call 131 450.  State and Territory numbers are here.
The Commonwealth Department of Health  has a health alerts page.

Rest assured that we will continue to regularly communicate the status of residents at our facility.
