Changes to the COVID-19 framework:
The Government announced on Monday 12 September 2022 that, from midnight the COVID-19 framework “traffic light system” will be removed. Masks will no longer need to be worn, except in health care settings and in aged care facilities, unless workplaces (or other venues or events) choose to request you to do so. Paraparaumu College does not require the use of masks, however, students and staff may choose to wear masks and we will support anyone who makes this choice.
Those who test positive for COVID-19 will still need to isolate for seven days, however, there is no longer a need for household contacts to isolate – just continue to take daily RAT tests, with negative results, before going about their activities.
So please continue to stay home if you are feeling unwell, test for COVID-19 if you experience symptoms, and follow the isolation and testing rules.
