Removal of Covid-19 Protection Framework
As you will be aware the COVID-19 Protection Framework was removed from midnight 12/9/22.

While masks are 'no longer strongly recommended' and will not be required at Northcote College, we continue to respect and strongly support students and staff who choose to wear a mask at any time.

Household contacts of a person with COVID-19 who test negative and do not have COVID-19 symptoms should continue to attend school. They need to complete a RAT test each day for five days and monitor for symptoms. Information on how to get RAT kits can be found on the Ministry of Health website.

Other Measures
Recommended public health measures will stay in place. These include ensuring our indoor spaces are well-ventilated, maintaining good hand hygiene, encouraging everyone to cough or sneeze into elbows and, most importantly, staying home and getting tested if you have COVID-19 symptoms.

Thank you for your ongoing support in protecting our school and community.
