Covid-19 information 

Alert Level 2– OPAIC Guidelines


Auckland is now at Covid-19 Alert Level 2 and the rest of the country is at Alert Level 1. At this Alert Level, tertiary education facilities can open and people can be out and about as long as they follow public health measures and consider others around them.

Contact tracing

The Ministry of Health has created a tracing app — NZ COVID Tracer. This app works by scanning a QR code on a poster at businesses. The app then keeps track of where you have scanned so you know where you have been.

Please use this app when you come to campus. You can find our QR code on the ground floor as you enter the building.

Instructions for downloading the app are here: 

Personal Hygiene

Cleaners are visiting frequently to clean and sanitise the campus and we’re ensuring plenty of sanitiser, wipes, handwash, and paper towels are available on each floor of the building.

Please take measures to stay safe and well. This includes:

  • Regularly wash and dry hands thoroughly - for at least 20 seconds.
  • Don't touch your face.
  • Cough and sneeze into your elbow.
  • Regularly disinfect surfaces.
  • Continuing good habits with face coverings will keep you and others safe, even at Alert Level 1 when it’s no longer compulsory. We have spare masks available at Level 1 Reception if you need one.
  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Get tested for Covid-19 if you have flu like symptoms - call your GP or Healthline and stay away from work/study.
