COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways.
It’s caused by a type of virus called a coronavirus.

COVID-19 is a serious issue for our whānau Māori.

Tikanga is at the core of everything we do as Maōri. It encompasses our unique culture, values and beliefs. 

Our kawa is like our set of guidelines and actions that we take to show our tikanga. 

The wonderful thing about our kawa is that it is able to adapt and change to suit our needs and to keep us safe. 

We are at Alert Level 1 - Prepare 

  • practice good hygiene with regular hand washing

  • keep 2m social distancing

  • stay home if you are māuiui

  • take note of where you have been and who you have been in contact with. 

No matter where you are living, the most important thing is that you, your whānau and all those you love and care about are kept safe and healthy. 

Kia kaha, kia māia, kai manawanui.

If you are concerned about going to mahi or sending your tamariki to kohanga reo or kura, some helpful information is available here.
