Re: Coronavirus (Covid-19)
As you are aware, there is continuing worldwide concern about the rapid spread of Coronavirus
(Covid-19). We are in close contact with the Ministry of Health and other organisations and are
carefully monitoring and actively managing the situation.
As an organisation, we have a pandemic/outbreak plan and policy in place and are ensuring the
people we support and staff are familiar with all the protocols of the policy.
With continued vigilance, the chance of widespread community outbreak is expected to remain low.
We are hopeful in Aspire this will be the case.
We’re also asking family and friends who have visited countries or areas of concern and may have
developed symptoms of fever, cough or shortness of breath to seek medical advice and not to visit
your family member for 14 days on return in order to keep them and their flat mates safe.
Of course, you can phone, email or text anytime.
We have a pandemic plan in action for Aspire staff who are travelling overseas which requires 14
days of self-isolation on their return to New Zealand where we will monitor them prior to their
return to Aspire to ensure they are healthy to return to work.
There is a dedicated Covid-19 Healthline number you can contact, 0800 358 5453 for advice.
Should you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact and we appreciate your support and
