 The 10 Golden Rules for Alert Level 1

  1. If you’re sick, stay home. Don’t go to work or school. Don’t socialise.
  2. If you have cold or flu symptoms call your doctor or Healthline and make sure you get tested.
  3. Wash your hands. Wash your hands. Wash your hands.
  4. Sneeze and cough into your elbow, and regularly disinfect shared surfaces.
  5. If you are told by health authorities to self-isolate you must do so immediately.
  6. If you’re concerned about your wellbeing or have underlying health conditions, work with your GP to understand how best to stay healthy.
  7. Keep track of where you’ve been and who you’ve seen to help contact tracing if needed. Use the NZ COVID Tracer app as a handy way of doing this.
  8. Businesses should help people keep track of their movements by displaying the Ministry of Health QR Code for contact tracing.
  9. Stay vigilant. There is still a global pandemic going on. People and businesses should be prepared to act fast to step up Alert Levels if we have to.
  10. People will have had different experiences over the last couple of months. Whatever you’re feeling — it’s okay. Be kind to others. Be kind to yourself.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) – what we’re doing

We are adapting to a changing environment due to the COVID-19 outbreak.  The wellbeing of our whānau, staff, manuhiri and people we work with is a priority for Whai Rawa during this time.

Like many organisations across the motu we urge everyone to look after themselves first and foremost so you are also able to help look out for others. Stay informed with the latest information and resources and keep an eye on the Ministry of Health’s website as they frequently provide updates, guidance and advice.  

At this stage, our WHAI RAWA OFFICE IS OPEN and it is business as usual. We want to share some of the steps we are taking to keep everyone healthy and safe, and to minimise disruption to the delivery of our projects, services and business operations over the coming weeks and months.

Flexible working environment
As a precautionary measure, we are testing and working on the resilience of our systems and processes should we need to work remotely. We are committed to high-quality performance (including confidentiality) at all times and will remain accessible via email and mobile phone.

Supporting staff
Unwell staff or staff showing flu and cold like symptoms are encouraged to work from home and will be supported with the tools to do so.

Restricting travel
Staff are restricting both international and domestic travel, whether that be for mahi or personal travel arrangements. As per new requirements announced by the government, they will need to self-isolate if returning from overseas.     

Minimising contact with others
We are reducing contact with external contacts and each other by having phone/video conference meetings instead and practicing “social distancing” by keeping at least a metre away from others and avoiding large groups/events.

Visitors
If you are visiting the office please phone ahead. Visitors who have been unwell, have had whānau staying from overseas or have whānau in their household with flu-like symptoms are being asked to reschedule their hui or call instead.

Economic impact
The economy, both overseas and here in New Zealand, are already experiencing impacts due to the outbreak. We are evaluating what that could mean for Whai Rawa and will act, as always, prudently and responsibly in the best long-term interests of the hapū.

The situation is dynamic and fluid, and our response will continue to evolve. We will endeavour to keep you informed of any new measures we put in place. Keep safe e te whānau!
