The Alert Level 4 restrictions in New Zealand do not permit physical club meetings - the advice below relates to cu=ircumstances before Alert 4 tuiimes and may become relevant again as restrictions are eased and Alert Levels lowered.

In the current environment it is up to each club to make its own decision on how to proceed with meetings, projects and events although erring on the side of caution is sensible. If meetings continue then members should take the advised social precautions now well communicated in the media.

It would seem to be a good idea for clubs to have a discussion to gauge the mood of members regarding whether and when they may continue to meet and probably to discuss other creative ways to meet in smaller groups if felt appropriate, or the online meeting possibilities; and if for the time being suspension of future meetings and projects is decided then how to remain connected etc.

Please follow the advice of the New Zealand Ministry of Health (MOH) Novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) guidance - Ministry of Health website and the World Health Organization when considering whether or not to proceed with meetings, projects and events. 
Covid-19 specific Healthline 0800 358 5453 / Tele-health line (anytime) is 1737

Where meetings continue it is a good idea to remind those attending of the New Zealand Ministry of Health (MOH) Novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) guidance and also to speak to the venue as to their hygiene practices and whether any additional measures need to be put into place to ensure the health of all present.

Maintain clear communication with members and community contacts.

If anyone is considering visiting another club it is advisable to check with that club ahead of the meeting as to any changes to the normal meeting details as some clubs are meeting as usual for the moment, some are meeting with reduced numbers (sometimes in a different location/format) and some have suspended meetings for the moment.

  Rotarians are super friendly but for the moment just a warm "Hello" may be best.
