COMMUNITY CENTRE PREPAREDNESS FOR NOVEL CORONA VIRUS (COVID 19)

The Centre is committed to staying open and provide a safe and hygienic place for our users. In light of recent developments and concerns about COVID -19, the Centre is reaching out the community to provide you with our updated guidelines.

We have consulted with the Ministry of Health. Their recommendations for the Centre and our community of users when using the Centre are above all washing hands frequently and thoroughly- that’s 20 seconds with soap – or equal time with hand santizer ensuring you get to all those hard to reach areas.

The Centre is  responding by cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces and objects, such as doorknobs. The Centre will continue to monitor the Ministry of Health updates https://www.health.govt.nz for any changes in the situation.

Prevention – how to protect yourself and others

  • cough or sneeze into your elbow or by covering your mouth and nose with tissues.
  • put used tissues in the bin or a bag immediately.
  • wash your hands with soap and water often (for at least 20 seconds) – try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
  • don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.
  • avoid personal contact, such as kissing, sharing cups or food with sick people.
  • stay home if you feel unwell.
  • Call your doctor or Healthline if you have any of the following symptoms; a cough; a high temperature (at least 38°C) or shortness of breath and have recently been to a country or area of concern, or have been in close  contact with someone confirmed with COVID-19.
