Tertiary education can open
Tertiary education facilities can open, with public health measures, such as wearing face coverings encouraged indoors.
Tertiary students can attend classes, lectures, labs, workshops, tutorials, and meetings in person.
My Vaccine Pass
Your tertiary provider may choose to require My Vaccine Pass for you to attend in-person learning (unless an exemption applies). Check with your provider about their requirements.
Children under the age of 12 years and 3 months do not need to provide a My Vaccine Pass to enter places with a vaccination requirement.
Education when self-isolating
If you are sick, waiting for your COVID-19 test results or have been asked to self-isolate you should stay home, and not go to your educational facility.
Your school, kura, or tertiary facility should provide distance learning options if you need to stay home.
Talk to your education provider if you or your child needs to learn from home.
Keep up healthy habits to protect us
Even though we are a highly vaccinated country, COVID-19 can still spread in our communities.
To slow the spread of the virus, and continue to help protect you, your whānau, and your community, it is important to keep up the healthy habits we know.
- Regularly wash and thoroughly dry your hands or use hand sanitiser.
- Sneeze and cough into your elbow.
- Keep your distance from people you do not know.
- Clean or disinfect shared surfaces often.
- If you have cold, flu or COVID-19 symptoms, stay home and get a test.
