Under the traffic light system, and especially now with all of Aotearoa under the RED Traffic Light setting due to community transmission of the Omicron variant, more and more whānau will need to self-isolate from home. It is vital that whānau start to kōrero and plan now for how this will happen when a member of their whānau becomes COVID-19 positive.
Being aware of proper home isolation procedures will be vital in ensuring our whānau are able to self-isolate at home safely, without endangering other whānau at home or in their wider hapori.
We have produced this one-page quick guide called 'Isolating at Home – Getting prepared'. This resource will help prompt and guide whānau to kōrero together, create plans, and gather the information needed in your whānau plan for when a whānau member becomes positive for COVID-19.
You can download a printable copy of this resource below.
Ngāti Ranginui Iwi Society Incorporated held their Annual General Meeting on Sunday at Tuapiro Marae in Katikati. Due to the current COVID restrictions and to allow for distancing, we had to limit the amount of whānau that could attend our AGM in person.
However, we were able to provide a livestream of the AGM on our Ngāti Ranginui Facebook page thanks to the awesome skills of Papa George Burt.
You can still watch the recording of the AGM livestream through the link below and access our Annual Report on our Ranginui website.
If you have received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, you can request an official record of your COVID-19 vaccination status – My Vaccine Pass. Your Vaccine Pass will allow you to visit places, businesses and events in Aotearoa that require proof of your vaccination status when the Traffic Light system starts on Friday.
There are a number of ways you can get your vaccine pass:
Getting vaccinated will help protect yourself, your whānau, and our rohe, and also make sure you aren't turned away from being able to visit retail, hospitality venues, events and other public places. Visit the Kei a koe website for a vaccination service in your hapori, or find a wider range of vaccination services on the Karawhiua website.
For whānau that become COVID-19 positive, here are a list of items that are essential to care for a whānau member with COVID-19 in home isolation.
