Note: This message is intended for those who are in quarantine/self-isolation.
Dear Parents and Caregivers,
Schools have now received updated advice from the Ministry of Education regarding Novel Coronavirus and the request for students to stay away from school.
As of 2 February 2020, all travellers arriving in New Zealand out of mainland China should self-isolate for a period of 14 days from the time they leave mainland China.
People who departed from mainland China before midnight 2 February and have been in Wuhan City or Hubei Province should self-isolate for a period of 14 days from the time they leave mainland China.
People who departed from mainland China before midnight 2 February are not required to self-isolate unless they have been in Wuhan City or Hubei Province in the last 14 days.
If you have been in close contact with a confirmed novel coronavirus case you should self-isolate for 14 days. If you develop symptoms including fever, coughing and difficulty breathing you should ring Healthline (for free) on 0800 611 116 or your doctor.
,呼吸困难的症状,请免费拨打卫生部(0800 611 116)或您的医生。
Information about ‘self-isolation’ and what is required is available here on the Ministry of Health website.
This updated advice will mean that a number of students who are currently ‘staying away’ will now be able to return to school.
We look forward to welcoming more students back to school in the coming days.
Please note that if you think it is better for your child to stay away for the full 14 days, then we respect your decision.
Bruce Warren, Principal
