COVID-19 Alert Level 2 update: Changes from Monday 31 August


There are some changes taking place next week. Here's what they mean for your children and whānau:

  • Face coverings are mandatory on public transport from Monday 31 August, at Alert Level 2 and above.

  • This does not apply to children under 12 years of age and does not apply to school transport.

  • Public Health officials have advised that children under the age of 6 should not wear face coverings.

  • Children and young people do not need to wear face coverings at school.

  • Public health control measures are in place including children and staff staying home if they are sick, contact tracing, and hygiene requirements.

  • However if your child doesn’t need to wear a face covering but wants to, that’s fine.

  • Face coverings are another way we can help keep ourselves and others safe, along with good hand hygiene, cough and sneeze etiquette, appropriate physical distancing when out and about and staying home if we are sick.


We’re continuing contact tracing by having QR code posters at our entrances, so please check in every time you come onsite and use the sanitiser provided.


If you haven’t already downloaded the NZ COVID Tracer app the Ministry of Health’s website has information to help you do that.


We also keep a visitor register for anyone who doesn’t have the app and also for anyone who comes onsite for a period of time. This will help us with contact tracing in the unlikely case it is needed.


If you have any questions about face coverings or anything else, please get in touch.
