COVID-19: implications for our practice
Auckland is at Alert Level 3, while the rest of New Zealand is at Alert Level 2. Please read the guidance.
In this section
This page is specifically for practice considerations during Alert Level 2. 'Working in a Pandemic Environment' covers all aspects of our work, including the key aspects of Alert Level 2, Oranga Tamariki core responsibilities and our working environments.
Auckland is at Alert Level 3. Our primary responsibilities and principles guide us when Alert Level 3 applies. We also have specific guidance and resources.
These resources will support practitioners working with Pacific families to help them access the right information and services in their communities.
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.
This guidance supports kaimahi who work directly with tamariki, rangatahi, whānau or family and caregivers to understand how the vaccine could impact the people they work with, and to help them to have conversations with these groups about vaccination.
