Protecting the wellbeing, health and safety of our workforce and partners as well as kura, kaiako, ākonga and their communities is our top priority. It is important to us that we’re doing everything we can to keep N4L people and those we interact with as safe as possible from COVID-19. Our risk assessment and public health advice shows us that vaccination is our strongest form of protection.

From Monday 31 January 2022, all N4L workers and visitors who come to our workplaces must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. In addition, all N4L workers, partners and volunteers that visit schools, kura or non-N4L sites must be fully vaccinated.

What this means for people visiting an N4L workplace

  • Any worker, visitor, supplier or contractor will be required to present a COVID-19 Verification Certificate (My Vaccine Pass or other Ministry of Health vaccination certificate) upon entry effective from 8.00 am on Monday 31 January 2022.
  • Any visitors who have an approved medical exemption issued by the Ministry of Health should contact their N4L meeting host to determine how we can connect and collaborate in a way that’s safe for all.
  • In addition to the vaccination requirements, all visitors to N4L workplaces must scan in on arrival using the NZ COVID Tracer App and will be restricted to meeting rooms only.

The risks associated with COVID-19, and the measures and controls to eliminate or mitigate those risks, may change over time. We’ll regularly review our policy and approach to ensure we’re balancing what’s required to deliver a great service, with the latest information and guidance from a government, science and technology perspective, so our people, partners and customers are safe.
