COVID-19 student update (Friday 13 November)

As advised this morning, an AUT student tested positive for COVID-19 and visited the City Campus Student Hub between 2.30pm and 2.40pm on Tuesday 10 November.

If you visited the City Campus Student Hub on Tuesday 10 November, health authorities are advising you to get a COVID-19 test as a precaution, even if you don’t have symptoms.

This is an enhanced contact tracing tactic to ensure the health authorities are not missing cases who may be asymptomatic. More detail can be found on the Ministry of Health’s media announcement.

Places where you can go to be tested are on the ARPHS website

Please also let us know so we can provide any support you may need. The student contact form is here

We are working directly with health authorities for contact tracing and with all City Campus Student Hub staff to support them with any concerns. As a precautionary measure, the City Campus Student Hub will undergo a deep clean.

The Government has announced today that workers can return to the Auckland CBD and that the country remains at alert level 1.

AUT campuses will open from tomorrow (Saturday)

In line with today’s update, we will be open for business as usual from tomorrow. This includes the Library, Tech Central and postgraduate spaces.

Key points of the Government’s announcement to keep in mind:

  • People are advised to wear masks on public transport and at events
  • Everyone should be using contact tracing apps. For AUT staff and students, this means the AUT App and the government COVID-19 app
  • As always, people should stay home if they are sick and get tested if they have symptoms.

Our thoughts are with the student and those who may be impacted. Please take care.
