The Government announced Friday 12 March that Auckland will join us in Alert Level 1. This means that all EIT locations are at Alert Level 1and EIT’s COVID-19 Incident Control team has been deactivated. We still need to be vigilant and ready in case COVID-19 reappears in our community. We will bring you relevant information as it comes to light, such as information about vaccinations.
We ALL are in the Alert Level 1 and the following principles will apply to all students;
We will remain working on campus and teaching face to face. We will continue to plan for teaching online if required.
Face coverings are not compulsory at EIT, unless your industry requires it or if you are travelling by public transport.
Continue to record your movements either through the NZ COVID Tracer app, or personal diary. Your attendance will continued to be recorded by your tutors.
If you have recently come from Auckland, the Ministry of Health considers you low risk and can return to campus. If you have flu like symptoms however, or have been to a location of interest, or considered a close or casual contact, please contact the dedicated COVID-19 Healthline 0800 358 5453 for further advice.
Wash your hands, and cough into your elbow if you need to.
Do not come to EIT if you are sick and contact your GP or Healthline if you have flu like symptoms. Please notify your tutor if you are required to take a COVID-19 test. You must self-isolate until you have a negative test result and symptom free.
‘At risk’ people, as defined by Ministry of Health, can continue working on campus but should discuss with their GP if they have concerns.
Please continue to be kind to yourself and to each other. Don’t hesitate to ask for help, look through our Student Support Services, or access1737, a free call or text counselling service available 24/7.
For more information, please contact your Programme Co-ordinator, or email email@example.com.
Lastly, a big thank you on behalf of EIT for your continued patience and understanding as we work through these requirements. We really appreciate it. He waka eke noa - We’re all in this together!
