Covid-19 Development Update - May 2020

Construction under Alert Level 2 

Following the lockdown period, Kāinga Ora’s build and developer partners re-opened sites after the move to Alert Level 3 on 28 April. With the country now in Alert Level 2, Kāinga Ora staff members who support the work undertaken by our build and development partners will continue to visit sites.  

Our top priority will continue to be health and safety for everyone who works, or visits our sites. We will ensure our staff and contractors follow all government health and safety protocols designed to keep workers, as well as the community, safe, as we all unite against COVID-19. This includes such things as following guidance relating to physical distancing, hygiene, site entry and exit, deliveries, and visitor protocols.

For information on the new Government health and safety standards and protocols for the industry, visit the CHASNZ website (Construction Health and Safety New Zealand).
