We are urging all staff to carefully consider all overseas personal travel at this point in time. The university of course can’t and won’t dictate where people go on personal leave, however it is important that staff understand implications that might be associated with a decision to travel abroad right now. These implications might range from imposed travel restrictions, insurance issues, to a need to self-isolate for 14 days upon return (and therefore cannot return to work).
Here are a few tips that may be helpful in your decision making:
If you are travelling, note that insurance at the moment can be problematic with COVID-19, so pay attention to the fine print and keep an eye out for any updates or changes to your insurance coverage

It’s that time of year again where men around the country sharpen their razors and their loved ones roll their eyes a little, all in the name of raising funds and awareness of men’s health issues in Aotearoa. This year we’ve put together a team for any staff or students who want to take part in a collaborative effort.
It’s often much easier to raise funds as part of a collective and tends to be a lot more fun when you don’t feel alone as the filthy thing on your upper lip is stared at by worried onlookers.
