What we are doing to protect our whānau and staff during COVID Alert Level 1

1. Hygiene – we continue to practice good hygiene, wash hands, cover sneezes and coughs etc.

2. Contact Tracing – continue to keep a record of where you have been (use the QR COVID app where you can)

3. If you feel unwell - If staff feel unwell, they will not come to work. We ask that all whānau stay away from campus if feeling unwell.

4. When working with a client who has a respiratory illness or has been exposed to COVID, staff will wear a mask and may ask the client to do the same.

Please remember to wash your hands and to be kind to each other as we work through this challenging time together.

Kia maumahara te horoi ō ringaringa, a, ka mahi tātou ki tēnei wā uaua kia atawhai atu tātou ki a tātou.
