New Zealand has moved to Alert Level 3 as of 11:59 PM on Monday, 27 April 2020.
While we have the ability to offer limited face-to-face training under Level 3, we have decided that we will remain offering distance and online learning to our students for now.
The New Zealand Government will issue further guidelines on what Alert Level 2 will entail tomorrow (Thursday, 7 May 2020).
They will also inform us if we will be moving from Alert Level 3 to a higher or lower alert level, or remaining at Alert Level 3, on Monday, 11 May 2020.
If the Government decides to move to Alert Level 2, we will be issuing further guidelines and instructions to our team members, students, and the general public. These will be in-line with Government advice.
While we believe learning will resume on-campus at Alert Level 2, the way we will interact may change in the interim to ensure health and safety of all are protected as best as we can manage it.
Some activities, such as clinic days, may not resume until Alert Level 1.
Even though we are in Alert Level 3, and may be moving to Alert Level 2 soon, it is important that you and everyone you know remains safe and vigilant. Stay within your bubble, stay home whenever you possibly can (no unnecessary trips), keep washing your hands with soap for 20+ seconds (and drying them well), be kind, and together we can beat this virus.
As always, please contact us if you have any questions or need further guidance. Stay safe!
