Alert Level 1 Golden Rules

A reminder that, in order to continue our “stamping out” COVID-19, we ask that you remain vigilant by continuing to follow the Prime Minister’s golden rules for Level 1:

  • Staying home if you’re sick;  
  • Practicing good hand hygiene; 
  • Maintaining good cough and sneeze etiquette; and 
  • Making sure we keep track of where we’ve been for accurate contact tracing.  

You are strongly encouraged to use the government’s NZ COVID Tracer App to record your entry and exit around campus.  Over the next few days the government COVID QR codes that activate the Tracer app will be posted at the boundary of campus zones.  The records will be helpful for public health contact tracing should positive COVID cases reappear. 

Library/Tech Central facilities currently available

We encourage all postgraduate students to continue to use the Library and Tech Central for the remainder of this week.

As of Monday 15 June, the Library will be operating under their normal hours which is available on the Library website.  Students are no longer required to book for study spaces.

Stay well, be kind and we look forward to seeing you soon!
