Covid 19 Update 5th October 2020

Kia ora Birdwood whanau

The Prime Minister has advised the outcome of the review of alert level settings for Auckland, made by Cabinet today.

From 11.59pm Wednesday 7 October, Auckland will join the remainder of New Zealand, and move to Alert Level 1.

While this is good news, COVID-19 will be with us for many months to come. New cases in our communities remain a possibility, as happened with this recent resurgence in Auckland. It is important we avoid complacency and remain vigilant.

QR code posters continue to be required to be on display at Alert Level 1 and you will need to be ready to support health authorities with contact tracing, should new cases emerge in your community.

Public health measures will also help to reduce transmission of illness:
maintain your good cleaning and disinfecting practices
keep encouraging good hygiene standards
people who are unwell should stay away, and seek medical advice
everyone should get tested if recommended to do so by health professionals.
Face coverings are not required on public transport at Alert Level 1 but continue to be an option for individuals.
This is such exciting news and we look forward to seeing everyone back at school on Monday 12th October. Enjoy the rest of your holiday and I hope the sun continues to shine.
