COVID-19: implications for our practice
New Zealand is at Alert Level 1. Please read the guidance.
In this section
This page is for practice considerations during Alert Level 1. Working in a Pandemic Environment covers all aspects of our work during Alert Level 1, including the key aspects of Alert Level 1, our core responsibilities and our working environments.
Tamariki, whānau and caregivers may continue to deal with the impact of social isolation, and ongoing anxieties about COVID-19, for some time in a number of ways.
We have additional considerations as a result of the recent changes to COVID-19 restrictions when tamariki and rangatahi in care are to travel overseas, including when a placement is to be made or they are going on holiday.
This is guidance for all alert levels and provides details about how we support any tamariki we are involved with if they, or someone in their household/living arrangement, tests positive for COVID-19 and are required to enter quarantine.
These resources will support practitioners working with Pacific families to help them access the right information and services in their communities.
