There are key public health measures - Golden Rules - for everyone in New Zealand to follow.
For schools and early learning services this means:
If people are sick, they should stay home (phone Healthline or their GP and get tested if they have cold or flu symptoms).
Continue to regularly wash and dry hands, sneeze and cough into elbows.
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.
