Check this page for up-to-date information about the global pandemic and how it affects architects, architectural practices and our wider community. Last updated 12 August 2020.
As New Zealand returns to COVID-19 lockdown, we must prioritise the health and wellbeing of our community.
The team at Te Kāhui Whaihanga NZIA are doing everything we can to continue to serve our members and make our contribution to the wider community effort.
Current COVID-19 Alert Levels:
Info for architects
For the construction industry, the previous Level 3 protocols will need to be followed in Auckland at a minimum – these are available under the CHASNZ COVID-19 resources page.
These are being reviewed now by CHASNZ and they will be updated to reflect the new advice on the use of masks as well as using the COVID-19 tracer app. We will update our members on these guidelines when they are released.
Please remember the basics around hand washing, sanitising, distancing and not attending work if you have any symptoms and not coming to work if you can work from home.
For COVID-19 health advice and information, contact the Healthline team (for free) on 0800 358 5453 or +64 9 358 5453 for international SIMS.
