COVID PROTECTION FRAMEWORK – RED/ORANGE
AUT Millennium Specific information for Holiday Programme
The Government is leading our response to the COVID-19 pandemic and our goal is to ensure we meet their requirements. As we return to onsite operations, it’s essential that we minimise exposure to and transmission of COVID-19 at AUT Millennium. Outlined below are the measures AUT Millennium has adopted to protect at risk people and minimise the risk of community transmission.
As both a public and private venue, AUT Millennium must follow the Government’s guidelines regarding the vaccination status and gathering numbers within each space. Please do not take offense if a member of our staff asks you to wait outside. This is being done to ensure everyone’s safety during their visit to AUT Millennium.
The AUT Millennium team are very excited to be back to be able to provide our community activities we know everyone has missed! Please be patient with our team members while we are all learning how to work within the new Covid Protection Framework guidelines – everyone’s health and safety is our priority.
EVERYONE HAS A ROLE TO PLAY
We’re all in this together and there are some general steps you must take to help keep everyone safe:
- Please stay at home if you’re feeling at all unwell.
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water and/or hand sanitiser.
- If you need to sneeze or cough, do so into your elbow or tissue (and dispose of it in a bin).
- Maintain social distancing from people you don’t know.
- Wear a mask.
MY VACCINE PASS
As of Tuesday 5 April 2022, under the red and orange Protection Framework levels, AUT Millennium will no longer require everyone aged over 12 years and three months old to be fully vaccinated in order to enter and use the indoor facilities.
- Please note, all AUT Millennium Holiday Programme staff are fully vaccinated.
- The Vaccine Passport mandate will be reviewed at each Covid Protection Framework level and if there are any future government changes.
