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

Tertiary providers can open for on-campus delivery at the Red level, however, to minimise disruption to our learners, we have decided to finish the year off online. Our campus will remain closed for the rest of the year. Our intention is to resume on-campus teaching at the beginning of Study Block 1, 2022.
A key foundation of the Covid-19 Protection Framework is vaccination. Anyone who is double-vaccinated against Covid-19 can now request a My Vaccine Pass, which will soon be needed in a variety of public settings including events and hospitality venues. Find out how to get your pass here. The process can be a bit difficult for international students without a New Zealand form of identification, so the NZ International Students’ Association has made this guide to help you if you get stuck. It is likely Auckland will still be at the Red level when we return to campus next year. At this setting, the Government has determined students and staff can only be onsite at tertiary providers if they are vaccinated, so you will need your vaccine pass to enter the campus.
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. Instructions for downloading the app are here: https://tracing.covid19.govt.nz/
