Dear Manuka Street Hospital Patients and Visitors

PLEASE NOTE: We are in the middle of a major reconstruction project. While all facilities are operational and safe, they may appear cramped. Rest assured high quality patient care remains our prime focus. Manuka Street Hospital is fully operational during Covid Alert Level 1.

Patients are still being screened, prior to admission, by their surgeon and Manuka Street Hospital admission nurses.

A visitor restriction remains in place, especially in our Day Stay Unit, where patients cannot have a visitor due to construction. On our surgical Ward, we prefer to have one designated visitor, but no more than two visitors at any one time (there may be an exception for families – please call us).

If you or a household member work in an MIQ facility – please advise us.

We still have Contact Tracing in place; there is a QR code on our entrance door for your information, and we are asking all visitors to continue to sign in.


  • you are unwell or have any symptoms of respiratory infection (cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, head-cold symptoms (runny nose, sneezing, nasal drip) or loss of sense of smell, with or without fever; or
  • you are awaiting a respiratory virus test; or
  • you have returned from an overseas country/travel or had CLOSE CONTACT with someone with this travel history in the past 14 days; or
  • you had CLOSE CONTACT (i.e. household) with a confirmed or probable Covid-19 case OR other respiratory infection within the last 14 days.
  • Patients who are Airline Crew – you are required to stand down for 14 days following return from international travel (without test).

If any of the above apply, we will respectfully decline your entrance to our hospital.

Thank you for your continued cooperation. If you have any concerns, please feel free to give us a call to discuss those concerns. We aim to make your stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible, and we will endeavour to meet your individual needs.
