Vice-Chancellor of the University of Waikato, Professor Neil Quigley, shares a video message for all staff and students.

Stay safe and well during Alert Level 4 Lockdown:

  1. Stay home, and only make physical contact with those that you live with.

  2. When shopping, as much as possible send in only one person from your household at a time, and practice physical distancing and hygiene rules while shopping.

  3. Exercise is good for people's mental health. You can go for a walk, run or bike ride, but only do so with those that you live with and keep a 2 metre distance from everyone else.

  4. If you are unwell, do NOT go outside.

  5. Even though we're all at home, remember you can stay socially connected by talking to your peers, friends and family through calls or video chats.
