personal health policy & SELF-ISOLATION

- If you have been in close contact with someone confirmed with COVID-19 you will need to self-isolate for 14 days from the date of contact.


- Self-isolation is an effective precautionary measure to protect those around you – your family, friends, colleagues – from contracting COVID-19. It means taking simple, common-sense steps to avoid close contact with other people as much as possible, like you would with the seasonal flu virus. We know it’s a stressful time, but taking these measures will help protect you, your family and all of New Zealand from COVID-19 and other common infectious diseases.

- We encourage our patrons to stay home and self-isolate if you have any cold or flu-like symptoms or have travelled overseas in the last 14 days.

- It is important to us to keep you and our community safe and we appreciate your understanding.
