COVID-19 Update Mon 27 June 2022
Campus reopening from 11 July 2022
We look forward to welcoming our tauira, kaimahi and manuhiri back to our campuses and sites from 11 July.
In a previous update, we acknowledged that a COVID-19 vaccination policy had been introduced by the Council and Leadership of Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi - before many industry mandates were scrapped. In line with the Government changes, Awanuiārangi has decided there is now no requirement to have a vaccine pass to be on-campus or delivery sites, and we look forward to welcoming you all back from 11 July.
However, if you are required by Government policy or an organisation to have proof of vaccination, you must be able to produce this. For example, nursing tauira learning on-site at a hospital may be required to show proof of vaccination. Please ensure you are following the guidelines of those organisations if you are interacting with them.
The start of Semester Two on 11 July 2022 is when we are generally expecting most tauira to return to site for learning. But the wellbeing of our Awanuiārangi whānau is our top priority. So, we encourage our tauira to please get in touch with your kaiako or another member of kaimahi that you trust if you do have some concerns about returning. Kaimahi have been encouraged to do the same.
The beginning of Semester Two is still some weeks away. As it currently stands, Aotearoa remains at the ‘Orange’ setting of the traffic light system. For a reminder about what those rules look like, please go here.
At Awanuiārangi, we encourage you to take measures to look after yourselves where possible, such as keeping up good hand hygiene.
COVID-19 is still in our community, and once we re-open campuses, it may come onto site too. At any stage, with wellbeing at the front of mind, we may increase measures to protect people. This may include increasing mask use or implementing physical distancing.
