EAPworks are following and acting upon the advice of the Ministry of Health in relation to COVID 19. This is an evolving situation and as such, will be subject to change.
On Wednesday 12th August at midday Auckland moves into Alert Level 3. The Auckland region is everything in the Auckland Council boundary — from Wellsford in the north to Pukekohe in the south.
The rest of the country moves to Alert Level 2.
Our best level of defence against COVID-19 is to limit our interactions with others as outlined on the Government website:
At Alert Level 3, EAPworks anticipate most of our client appointments will continue to be by phone or by video chat. However, with the easing of some restrictions face to face appointments may be provided for urgent care only so long as the appropriate precautionary measures are taken. Those measures are explained below:
Practice good infection prevention control procedures for face to face appointments, including:
Prior to confirming a face to face appointment, the following screening question must be asked:
Have you encountered COVID-19 or anyone (including yourself) showing any symptoms of the COVID-19 virus, now or in the past 14 days?
If the answer is yes, they can only be provided with the choice of a video session or phone session.
For any on site requests approval must be sought prior from Julie Sames. Julie can be contacted at email@example.com, or on mobile 021 312 825.
EAPworks staff will work from home during Alert Level 3. We will, however, continue to operate as a 24/7 service.
As one of our trusted Associates we rely on you to exercise your own judgement to ensure you are not putting yourself at risk. Your safety and the safety of our clients is always our primary concern.
