As of Tuesday 23 February, Auckland joins the rest of Aotearoa under Alert Level 1. This is very reassuring news, particularly for our Auckland whānau, however we need to stay vigilant and take continue to take social distancing and hygiene precautions seriously. A few reminders about what this means are below:

  • Our office in Matatā is physically open, but we ask all whānau to please continue to sign in using the COVID-19 tracer app, or manual register, and to use hand sanitiser.
  • As always, please stay home if you are sick, and get tested.
  • Keep track of where you’ve been and who you’ve seen, use the NZ COVID Tracer app, if you can.
  • Physical distancing in public of at least 1m
  • Wash your hands regularly with soap, and sneeze and cough into your elbow
  • Wear a mask on public transport
  • For more precautions, visit the official COVID-19 website:
