COVID-19 update

New Zealand's response to COVID-19 is currently in Alert Level 1.

Our campuses are open and we look forward to seeing more students back in early July when B Trimester begins.

Have a question? Please get in touch: info@waikato.ac.nz or 0800 WAIKATO.

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.

  8. Businesses should help people keep track of their movements by displaying the Ministry of Health QR Code for contact tracing. At the University, please check in before you step in on campus.

  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.
