Maths Art Class

Tena koutou,
There was an incredible response last week to the Wednesday afternoon Maths Art classes being offered at DNI from next week, so much so that Sandra has agreed to put on a second set of classes on Thursdays.

Coronavirus Update as at Monday 2 March
The information below is from the Ministry of Health with a link to what the Ministry of Education are saying:
 
Keeping you and everyone else safe

The Prime Minister has announced the first case of COVID-19 [coronavirus] has been confirmed in New Zealand. The Ministry of Health has noted that although we have our first case of COVID-19, the chances of community outbreak remain low.

This case was identified because the person affected and their family did the right thing and got in touch with health authorities.

What’s important is that we’re all careful and observe basic health safety. Practising good hand and sneeze/cough hygiene is the best defence:
 
· wash your hands often with soap and water before and after eating as well as after attending the toilet
· cover coughs and sneezes with clean tissues or your elbow
· put used tissues in the bin

Please stay home if you feel unwell.

If you’re concerned that someone is showing symptoms of fever, cough or shortness of breath, encourage them to first ring Healthline (0800 358 5453) or contact their GP by phoning ahead of their visit to explain symptoms and travel history.  Take care of yourself, your whānau and your community through taking these measures.

It’s important we all continue to be alert but not alarmed.

Updated information from Ministry of Health
There are now two categories for travellers arriving in New Zealand:

· Category 1 – People who have travelled from or transited through Mainland China and Iran in the last 14 days are required to self-isolate for 14 days and contact Healthline after they have left the countries.
· Category 2 – People who have travelled from or via Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Singapore and Thailand who develop symptoms of fever, cough or shortness of breath should seek medical advice by first phoning Healthline’s dedicated COVID-19 number 0800 358 5453 or contacting their GP including phoning ahead of their visit.
