COVID Response at MIT

18 November2022

MIT acknowledges COVID-19 is still within the community.  The safety and wellbeing of our kaimahi - staff, ākonga - students and community continue to be at the forefront of decision-making when it comes to response settings.

The institute will continue to periodically review its risk assessment in regard to COVID 19 and take guidance from the Ministries of Education and Health.

We remind you currently the following measures are in place:

  • MASKS: These are no longer required on campus. Fellow students and staff may wish to continue wearing them for their own protection. Please respect their decision to do so. Staff cannot require their students to wear masks.
  • PLACEMENTS: Students and staff who are on placement in healthcare settings may still be required by those workplaces to wear masks. Please follow any directions to do so and speak with your lecturer if you are unsure whether this covers your placement.
  • ISOLATION: A 7-day period of isolation is now only required for those who test positive for COVID-19. Household contacts no longer have to isolate but need to take daily RAT tests. If a positive test is recorded, they should isolate for seven days.
  • SICKNESS: The best thing you can do to protect your health and well-being is not to come to MIT if you are feeling unwell for any reason. Instead, stay home and call either your GP or Healthline on 0800 611 116.
  • HYGIENE: Please continue to wash your hands thoroughly, covering all coughs and sneezes with tissues or your elbow. Hand sanitiser will be available.
