OPENING DOORS TO
Alert Level 1
There are no specific public health requirements for schools and early learning services at Alert Level 1. The Health and Safety at Work Act continues to apply and all schools and early learning services should adhere to the golden rules.
There are no restrictions on personal movement at Alert Level 1 so all students, children and staff continue to be safe to go to school, and all students must attend school.
We are supporting contact tracing efforts by displaying QR Code posters for the NZ COVID Tracer App.
Upon advice from the local medical officer of health, any educational facilities connected to a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19 must close on an individual or group basis for 72 hours to allow contact tracing, and then potentially for a further 14 days.
