COVID-19 UPDATE: 12th March 2021


Kia ora staff and students

Great news! Cabinet has announced this morning that Auckland is able to lift the current COVID-19 restrictions and revert to Alert Level 1, as of midday today. The most recent outbreak is now regarded as contained and the risk of community transition is low.

This means we can fully return all staff and students to campus. All classes can be held on campus, without the need for physical distancing.

A reminder however that we must still scan/sign in daily, wear face masks when on public transport or in close proximity to others and continue to practice good hand hygiene. Most significantly, please stay home if you are unwell and seek medical attention including a COVID-19 test if required.

I’m sure you are as thrilled as I am that we can fully return to campus. It has been a challenging start to our academic year and I commend you all for the flexibility and resilience you have shown moving in and out of lockdowns. It will be a pleasure to see our SAE creative community together and vibrant once more.

See you on campus!
