Tertiary education facilities can open
With My Vaccine Pass
Tertiary students with a My Vaccine Pass will be able to attend classes, lectures, labs, workshops, tutorials and meetings in person. They can access research spaces, student support and advisory services.
Capacity is based on 1-metre distancing.
Without My Vaccine Pass
Tertiary students who do not have My Vaccine Pass should talk to their provider about alternative learning options.
Scan in or keep a record of where you go
Scan the QR code or keep a record of where you go. This will help with contact tracing for any cases in your community.
Staff and students must wear a face covering indoors at tertiary education facilities and when accessing services such as student health, pharmacies and other retailers onsite.
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.
Student accommodation can open.
Accommodation providers can choose to require My Vaccine Pass for residents and staff. Check with your provider about their requirements.
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.
