Orange Level: All UCOL campuses are in Orange Level as per the traffic lights (COVID-19 Protection Framework).
UCOL is committed to ensuring that the harm that may be caused by COVID-19 to ākonga (students), kaimahi (staff, contractors), manuhiri (visitors) and our Te Tiriti partners that engage in UCOL activities, is minimised. As part of this commitment, UCOL is implementing the Vaccination Policy which aligns to the Government’s public health response to COVID-19. The policy requires that:
- By 1 February 2022 all kaimahi and ākonga must provide evidence that they have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
- By 1 March 2022 all kaimahi and ākonga must provide evidence that they have received a second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
- From 1 February 2022 all visitors on any UCOL premises must provide evidence that they have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine.
The only exceptions will be for those who have a Ministry of Health approved medical exemption, or USkills ākonga (students) or those currently enrolled with a secondary school and studying with us part time (per the Government’s regulations for secondary school students).
