COVID-19 Alert Level 1 reminder

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.
