Alert Level 2 reminder - 14 Sep 2020

Following the announcement from the Prime Minister we will remain at Alert Level 2, to be reviewed on Monday 21 September, with Cabinet having agreed in principle that the rest of the country will shift to Alert Level 1 at 11.59 PM that day, contingent on the continued containment of the virus.

Just another 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.

Here is a summary of the rest of the announcement:

  • Auckland will remain at Alert Level 2.5. This will be reviewed on Monday 21 September, with any changes for Auckland coming into effect on Wednesday 23 September. The most likely change at that time is an increase in gathering size limits.

  • The rest of the country will remain at Alert Level 2.

  • Effective today, seating restrictions and passenger capacity limits have been lifted for public transport across the country including airlines, buses, and trains. Mask use continues to be compulsory in these settings.
