Please see the following update for Auckland Selwyn Centres
The Government has announced that from 8th October, Auckland will join the rest of New Zealand at Alert Level 1. There will be no restrictions on social gatherings, as there have been no recent cases of community transmission.
Selwyn Centres in Auckland will be able to reopen and join other Selwyn Centres in Northland, Waikato and Christchurch in welcoming back coordinators, guests and volunteers.
In reopening, Selwyn Centres must display the NZ COVID Tracer QR code and have contact tracing forms in place. People attending the Centres will need to practise safe hygiene (handwashing using soap and water for at least 20 seconds and drying thoroughly, use of hand sanitisers, coughing and sneezing etiquette), and observe social distancing where practical.
The wearing of face coverings will also help to keep our Selwyn Centre coordinators and guests safe, and are particularly useful when physical distancing is difficult. It’s important that surfaces are regularly wiped down and the facility kept clean.
If people are feeling unwell, they must stay home and are advised to contact their doctor or Healthline on 0800 358 5453 if experiencing flu or cold-like symptoms.
At Alert Level 1, we all need to be ready in case COVID-19 reappears in our community, so please stay up-to-date via the Government’s COVID-19 website and, in particular, with the advice on the protecting yourself and others from covid-19 section, face coverings, keeping track of where you’ve been via the Covid tracing app, and maintaining physical distancing.
We greatly appreciate our coordinators and volunteers for all they’re doing to support their Centre guests and to keep our Selwyn community safe.
The Foundation also offers a range of resources and advice on support services, which are available at our ‘Be Well, Be Kind, Be Safe’ pages.
