Overview of the Long-term Approach to Managing COVID-19

With effect from 15 August 2023, the Government removed the remaining Covid-19 public health requirements, including 7 day mandatory isolation and wearing of face masks for visitors to healthcare facilities. The Ministry of Education recommends that tertiary education providers follow COVID-19 health advice, and support staff and learners to do so.

Mask wearing remains an important way we can prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses. RAT tests will remain free for everyone throughout 2023. Latest health advice on COVID-19 includes:

• Stay at home if you are feeling unwell;

• If you have tested positive for COVID-19, it is recommended you isolate for 5 days;

• If you do need to leave your home during your 5-day isolation period, it's important you take precautions to prevent spreading COVID-19 to others, e.g., wearing a mask
