Rotoroa is an island sanctuary where visitors can connect with nature. It is also a semi remote island with no medical facilities to deal with a Covid-19 case and emergency services may take some time to respond. We want keep our visitors and team staff, so have taken a practical approach to our policy and considered risk on the basis of the level of close contact indoors.
