At Alert Level 1 - Prepare

• All on-campus activities can continue as normal, including classes, famils, tutorials, & meetings, etc.
• All staff and students should return to on-campus activities.
• You will find the official NZ COVID Tracer QR code posters in a prominent place at or near the main entrances, even at Alert Level 1.  This helps enable individuals (i.e. staff, students, and visitors) to keep track of where the’ve been.
• There is no requirement to maintain physical
distancing.

• Remote learning and teaching systems should be maintained in case of a move to a higher alert level.
• QRC is ready to move up alert levels at short notice (i.e. be ready to implement the required public health control measures of each level)
• If a staff or student is concerned about their wellbeing, or has underlying health conditions, they should work with their GP or other health professional to understand how best to stay healthy

At Alert Level 2 - Reduce

• All on-campus activities at QRC can take place, such as classes, industry speakers, tutorials and meetings, provided the necessary public health control measures are in place.
• Remote learning and teaching arrangements will remain ready to roll-out to allow us to manage capacity and for ‘at risk’ students and staff.
• Contact tracing information must be collected that identifies which students and staff (and any other visitors) have been in each ‘controlled
learning space’ and ‘other controlled environments’ and at what time. A
‘controlled learning space’ refers to our classrooms & other controlled environments’ include residential accommodation.

• As part of this contact tracing process, we are now required to display the official NZ COVID Tracer QR code posters in a prominent place at or
near the main entrances, and to ensure (to the greatest extent practicable) that each person entering the facility scans the QR code or provides appropriate details to enable contact tracing. Additional QR code posters are generated and placed outside different rooms or separated areas within our  facilities to allow more accurate contact tracing.
• The Ministry of Education recommends that students bring face coverings or masks with them when attending on-site activities, and make use of these where appropriate, particularly where physical distancing may be difficult; for example in a confined space with other students or staff, such as in smaller classroom, lifts, or in transportation organised by the tertiary provider, etc.

At Alert Level 3 - Restrict

• QRC may provide education services under the principles below and the detailed guidelines to the right:
-All teaching and other activities should be done remotely, wherever possible.
-Where it is not possible to deliver teaching online, some facilities may remain open (e.g. for practical-based delivery).
-Any class, workshop, etc. that cannot be delivered online and remains open must be limited to 20 people or less.  Each such group is considered a ‘bubble’ and must not interact with any other student/staff bubbles of 20.  QRC will work to revise timetables that enables all learning to be delivered online & reschedule practical classes to a later stage in the term.
-Anyone who is not student/staff should not be on campus / site (‘staff’ includes contractors – e.g. plumber and electricians may go on site to do repairs etc.).
-Distance learning provision will remain available for all students.
-Courses where close contact is unavoidable must remain online only & large classes of more than 20 people, and any outdoor gatherings on tertiary sites are not allowed.
-Workplace-based learning is subject to the policies and practices being applied to that type of workplace.

-For any on-site activities, appropriate infection control measures , such as physical distancing, along with Worksafe requirements must be met at all times. This includes the requirement to display the official NZ COVID
Tracer QR code posters in a prominent place at or near the main entrances, and to ensure (to the greatest extent practicable) that each person entering the facility scans the QR code or provides details to enable contact tracing. Additional QR code posters can be generated and placed outside different rooms or separated areas within the facilities to allow more accurate contact tracing.
-The Ministry recommends that students bring face coverings or masks with them when attending on-site activities, and make use of these where appropriate, particularly where physical distancing may be difficult; for
example in a confined space with other students or staff, such as in workshops, lifts, transportation organised by the tertiary provider, etc.
-Vulnerable people (or those caring for/living with vulnerable people) should not be asked to carry out any on-site activities.
• Any educational facilities affected by COVID-19 will directed be
closed.

At Alert Level 4 - Lockdown

• All of QRC facilities must be closed, with the exception of necessary
student accommodation, and those deemed as ‘Essential Services’.
• Student accommodation facilities will remain open to enable students to self-isolate, where necessary.
• Providers must continue to deliver education remotely, where possible.
• Workplace-based learning is subject to the policies and practices being applied to that type of workplace.

• Where access to a tertiary site has been approved for an Essential Service, use the minimum number of people to complete the task, after consideration of workplace safety and workload.
• At-risk people1 (or those caring for/living with at-risk people) should not
be asked to carry out any on-site activities.
• Gatherings of people at tertiary facilities is not allowed.
