NZ moves COVID-19 to Level 3, soon to be level 4
The Government has announced that New Zealand has moved to COVID-19 level 3 and will soon move to level 4. Classes are suspended immediately and campuses are closed from tonight (Monday 23 March) until further notice.
Planning is underway to run as many of our programmes as is possible remotely, using Capital Training online services. We know that getting back to some semblance of ‘normal’ by offering our courses remotely will be important for the health and wellbeing of our students. We’ll have more information about this at a later date and tutors will be in contact with students all the time.
What does Level 3 mean?
Level 3 means everyone needs to prepare for self-isolation over the next 48 hours. Schools and all educational facilities close tomorrow, except for the children of essential workers such as health staff. They will be fully closed from midnight Wednesday, along with businesses except essential services such as supermarkets, pharmacies, clinics, and lifeline utilities. Travel is severely restricted and only for essential services.
Alert Level 4 is expected to continue for 4 weeks at this stage.
