The Dunedin Night Shelter has reopened after closing during Covid 19 Alert Levels 4 and 3.
Chairman Dr Rob Thomson said it had been a difficult decision to close the door temporarily, and was grateful for ongoing support from the public that had made it possible to reopen.
During the lockdown period the building was available to the Southern District Health Board to use if it needed quarantine facilities or the hospital was at capacity, he said.
There would be some restrictions in the number of guests able to stay and there had been a lot of planning for safely accommodating both guests and staff.
In normal times, donations of bedding, clothing and food were welcome, but due to Covid-19 he asked that people please hang on to them for a few weeks, or contact the shelter.
