Important Update - Omicron Outbreak

27 January 2022

Tēnā tatou e te whānau

Ko te tumanako kei te noho haumaru koutou katoa, ahakoa ngā aupiki, ngā auheke o te wā.

As we continue to navigate through the Omicron outbreak, we wanted to provide some key updates in regards to the service and support we are able to provide.

We also wanted to share important updates and key changes regarding the  RED Traffic Light Protection Framework

The shift to RED came into force at 11:59 Sunday 23 January, since then the Government has introduced changes and a ‘Phased Approach’ to dealing with this outbreak due to the highly transmissible Omicron variant.

The phases of the Government’s planned approach are outlined below

PHASE ONE – Stamp it Out

We are currently in Phase One of the protection framework which will maintain the approach used in previous lockdowns which includes ongoing PCR testing at stations and notifying positive cases and contacts via phone call.

Positive cases and close contacts will be provided additional support but are encouraged to isolate at home.

  • Isolation period for positive cases - 14 days
  • Isolation period for close contacts - 10 days

PHASE TWO – Slow the Spread

Phase Two will come into place as Omicron continues to spread across communities around the country. The focus and targeted support will shift to the most vulnerable and heavily impacted communities. Rapid Antigen Testing will be introduced as a key detector of the virus. Positive cases and close contacts in the community will be notified via text in most situations and will be required to isolate at home.

  • Isolation period for positive cases – 10 days
  • Isolation period for close contacts - 7days

PHASE THREE – Living with COVID

The Government has warned the public to expect the number of positive Omicron cases to reach thousands a day. When this occurs, the country will move to Phase Three which will focus on the immune compromised and those who are most vulnerable. Rapid Antigen testing will continue, and positive cases and close contacts will be expected to self-manage with additional support available where required.

  • Isolation period for positive cases – 10 days
  • Isolation period for close contacts - 7days

IMPORTANT UPDATES UNDER RED – MANDATORY MASK WEARING

-It is now mandatory to wear masks at food and drink businesses, events, and gatherings

-Children are now required to wear masks on public transport and school transport

-All workers in public facing roles must wear 2R or level 2 medical grade masks

While many businesses, will remain operational under the RED framework its important you understand the new requirements and we encourage you and your whānau to get vaccinated or get your booster shot after the four-month waiting period.

Further details on requirements under RED and more detail can be found on the Unite against Covid-19 website.
