  • Soap, water and the ability to dry hands should be provided in bathrooms.

  • Regularly disinfect shared surfaces.

  • Support contact tracing efforts by displaying QR Code posters for the NZ COVID Tracer App.

  • Stringent self-isolation of those who display relevant symptoms of COVID-19, test positive for COVID-19, have been in close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19, or have been overseas in the last 14 days – Ministry of Health information for self-isolation.
