Use COVID-19 Alert Level 2 contact tracing form when on campus.
New Zealand is at COVID-19 Alert Level 2. We are preparing buildings for re-entry and expect to begin re-opening our facilities and services from Monday, 18 May. It may take some time to get up and running and access to buildings, facilities and equipment may not be immediate.
Some research facilities and equipment may be available to postgraduate research students who wish to undertake research on campus. If you are a postgraduate research student, please check with your main supervisor about what is available to use and when it will be possible to gain access.
If you plan on recommencing research, experiments, studio or fieldwork on campus, it is important you have contingency plans in place that will enable experiments or fieldwork to be safely closed down within 24 hours if a transition back to Alert Level 3 is required. Postgraduate student researchers need to prepare contingency plans with their supervisory team.
All re-opened buildings and services will be treated as a “controlled” environment in which the University implements a number of measures to keep people safe. You must follow these measures when you come to campus:
You should stay home if you are sick or are “at-risk” for COVID-19. People considered at risk include those aged over 70, pregnant women and those with underlying medical conditions.
Under Alert Level 2, researchers must follow a number of additional measures when undertaking research:
Many research activities have moved into people’s homes. Our aim, as a University, is to enable research to continue wherever this is possible, without putting the safety of our staff, students and members of our community at risk. This means that any research undertaken from home must comply with the relevant COVID-19 alert level restrictions.
It is very important that research teams, research students and supervisors, and research partners and collaborators keep in touch through online platforms, email or phone meetings.
