Learning in Orange

All of New Zealand is now under the COVID-19 Protection Framework (traffic light).
Our region is currently under Orange.

Face coverings or masks 

  • Learners and staff are expected to bring their own masks every day and have them with them at all times.
  • Wearing a mask or face covering is recommended in all interactions where 1 metre physical distancing cannot be maintained.

Contact tracing and QR code scanning

  • All staff, learners and visitors to our campuses must either scan a QR code with the COVID-19 Tracer App or make a manual record as they move around campus.  Please check that Bluetooth has been enabled on the app.
  • Each NMIT building has its own QR code (except for Richmond and Marlborough Campuses).
  • There is a QR code for each business onsite (for instance SANITI, Ake Ake)
  • Registers and sanitisation stations are in all buildings.

Please note: Everyone using the Mahitahi Colab area will need to show their ‘My Vaccine Pass’. 

Proof of vaccination for some learners

NMIT is following the mandatory vaccination requirements as outlined by the COVID-19 Public Health Response (Vaccinations) Order 2021(external link), which requires workers in secondary schools, the hospitality and service industries such as hair, beauty and hospitality and the fitness sector to be vaccinated.

The NZ government requires anyone who is studying hospitality and cookery, beauty and body therapy, hairdressing, healthcare and fitness to provide proof of vaccination. 

If this affects you please contact Information and Enrolments on 0800 422 733 or via this link(external link)

Our vaccination policy for all other learners is currently being considered and consulted on.
