Following the announcement from the Prime Minister we will remain at Alert Level 2 until at least the 6 September.
Just a reminder that while everyone is onsite at Alert Level 2, we must adhere to key health measures including:
Good hand hygiene and cough and sneeze etiquette
Staying away if sick
Keeping the appropriate physical distance from others
Cleaning and disinfecting our high touch surfaces daily
Displaying QR code posters at our entrances and encouraging all of our community to download the NZ COVID Tracer App and use it if they come onsite
Keeping a visitor register for anyone who cannot use the app and for other visitors who come onsite for a period of time.
We know all these things will help to keep our community as safe as possible. Because of these measures, your child does not need to wear a face covering while at school. We will of course support them should they choose to do so.
For those of you who might be finding things more difficult than usual, a reminder that there is a large range of support available for businesses and the community. We encourage you to visit covid19.govt.nz for more information, or get in touch and we will help you to find the information and support you need.
