OPAIC Guidelines


New Zealand has now entered the Covid-19 Protection Framework. The framework introduces a flexible traffic light system for managing Covid-19 in the community.  It provides us with more freedom to move around, and less disruption to our daily lives caused by lockdowns and other restrictions. Auckland is now at the Orange level of the framework. You can find detailed information about the traffic light system here.

On campus at the Orange setting

Tertiary education facilities can open at the Orange setting. In Study Block 2, all classes will take place on campus. 

Face masks

Although masks are not specifically mandated in tertiary education settings, face masks help reduce the spread of Covid-19 and the Government recommends wearing them in all indoor settings.

What to do if you’re sick

Anyone who is required to self-isolate should stay home. Please contact your lecturer and Student Success ( if you are required to self-isolate to let them know.

Keeping safe on campus

Please continue to follow public health guidelines to protect yourself, your whānau, and your community:

  • Wash and sanitise your hands regularly
  • Wear a face mask to help reduce the spread of Covid-19
  • Physically distance where possible
  • Isolate when you are a household contact
  • Get a test if you have symptoms
  • Stay at home if unwell
  • Get a booster vaccine if you are eligible
