Coronavirus update II

Kia ora koutou. 

Today, Our advice from the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education has been amended as follows:

We now request that any students who have recently been to Wuhan or Hubei province ONLY or have been in close contact with someone confirmed with the virus, for that student to remain at home for two weeks (14 days) from the arrival date back into New Zealand.  This is a change from the blanket advice regarding China.

We ask that parents/caregivers call the student office to inform us of any student that will be absent due to having been in Wuhan or Hubei province or having had contact with someone confirmed with the virus.

As always, anyone who is unwell should not be at school.  If you have a particular concern about your child please contact Healthline at 0800 611 116 or their GP for medical advice. Healthline has translators and interpreters available 24/7 in 150 languages and they do have Mandarin and Cantonese speaking staff available.

Thank you for your continued understanding and support.
