Important information for visitors and groups regarding current coronavirus outbreak.

The well-being of our staff and visitors is of the utmost importance to us. On the morning of your visit if you, or any member of a group that you are visiting with, are showing any symptoms that may be caused by coronavirus,  please postpone your trip to Te Manawa.

Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death.

Standard recommendations to prevent infection spread include regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, thoroughly cooking meat and eggs. Avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing.

We will be checking in with all schools and early childhood centres who have upcoming bookings at Te Manawa, and anyone planning a group visit in the next while.

If you think you may be infected, please postpone your visit. Contact a doctor as soon as possible to confirm a diagnosis.

You can also contact Healthline on 0800 611 116 for free advice from experienced nurses.

If you’ve booked a programme or a self-lead experience, there will be no cancellation fee, and we will do everything we can to reschedule your visit.

You will find more information about protecting yourself, your colleagues, your ākonga, and their whānau at the links below.
