Regrettably, due to the current situation with the coronavirus, we announce that the South Island and Auckland Damage Prevention Workshops will be postponed.

To slow the spread of COVID-19, gatherings of people in close proximity, particularly indoors, are not recommended. These measures to limit non-essential gatherings are designed to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

With continued vigilance, we hope the community outbreak remains low. When the situation changes positively we will be able to set a new date for each Workshop. We trust you understand the rationale for this decision and look forward to being able to advise a rescheduled date as soon as possible.

Please remember the most important thing to do is practice good hygiene. This means:

  • covering coughs and sneezes with disposable tissues or coughing/sneezing into your elbow
  • disposing of used tissues appropriately in a bin
  • washing hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water and drying them thoroughly, or using hand sanitiser: 
    • before eating or handling food
    • after using the toilet
    • after coughing, sneezing, blowing your nose or wiping children’s noses
    • after touching public surfaces
  • trying to keep 2 metres away from people who are unwell
  • limiting alcohol and drug use (as this may affect your ability to adequately follow the advice above).
