Kia ora ACNZ team,

As we are aware, New Zealand will remain at the existing Alert Levels until Sunday. Auckland will stay at Alert Level 3 until 11:59pm on 30 August 2020.
The rest of the country will remain at Alert Level 2. 
Due to Alert Level changes and the next GOVT announcement scheduled for September 6, the decision has been made for ACNZ Staff and Students to remain working and learning from home until September 11th 2020.  The decision was made to remain working and learning using online platforms to minimise disruption while we wait for September 6th Govt COVID-19 status review.
However, we understand that there are students who require library services and resources and ACNZ Staff who may require a suitable work place to plan, prepare and access resources.  Therefore, ACNZ Campus (Penrose) and library will be opened on the following dates and times;

September 2nd (Wednesday) from; 9am - 4pm 
September 8th (Tuesday) from; 9am - 4pm
September 9th (Wednesday) from; 9am - 4pm 
Staff are welcome to come into the office to work, plan and prepare during opening times and hours.  Can I please ask, if you are planning to visit or work on site; can you please inform

Youth Guarantee; ACNZ YG Programme Manager is working with YG Partnership sites to confirm if hosting sites will reopen under Alert Level 2 or remain closed.   If YG partnership sites remain closed, both YG tutors and students will remain working and learning from home until further notice. If YG sites reopen, the hosting site/tutors/programme manager will communicate with YG team and students to ensure COVID-19 rules and regulations are in place for learning sites and spaces. 
ACNZ Partnership Sites in Timaru and Napier, will follow the instructions of their hosting church College co-ordinator to ensure safe learning and environments comply with COVID-19 rules and regulations. 
I will send further communication and instructions to ACNZ Staff post COVID-19 September 6th announcement.
