At the Settlement Centre Waikato, keeping our community and staff safe is our priority.

Here are the things we are doing to ensure the continued health and wellbeing of all those who come into the centre at Alert Level 1.

  • We have placed hand sanitiser stations throughout the centre. We will encourage everyone to use these stations every time they come into the centre.
  • We have a regular and thorough cleaning programme in place, with particular focus on high use areas and frequently touched surfaces.
  • Our dedicated cleaning team will ensure tables are sanitised first thing in the morning and throughout the day as possible. We request that every venue user sanitise tables after the use of the rooms. Sanitisers and wipes will be located in each room.
  • Toilet areas will feature signage to remind you on correct handwashing techniques.

If you are feeling unwell or have any COVID-19 or flu-like symptoms we ask you to please stay home. If you are unwell you will not be able to access services at the centre face to face.

We will continue to follow Ministry of Health guidelines and we encourage you to contact the Ministry of Health’s Healthline 0800 358 5453 for COVID-19 further advice and information.
