Council services during alert level 1

Our services have returned to normal but it’s important we keep up with basic hygiene measures including washing your hands and coughing or sneezing into your elbow.

Remember to follow these guidelines:
  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. Use the NZ COVID Tracer app as a handy way of doing this.
  8. Businesses should help people keep track of their movements by displaying the Ministry of Health QR Code for contact tracing.
  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.

Recovery Plan

Communities globally, nationally and locally are feeling the significant effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. Locally, the effects of a drought have exacerbated this for the rural communities of the Hauraki District.

This plan seeks to capture the actions undertaken and planned through the three stages of Respond, Recover, and Revitalise. It also provides context about the national and local settings for informing appropriate decision making for future actions.
