Our policy for visitors and COVID-19 vaccination
Dec 1, 2021
You must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to enter Motu Research premises (93A and 97 Cuba Street, Wellington).
The New Zealand Government has signalled vaccination is key to moving safely to a less restricted environment. Motu Research recognises vaccination is our strongest form of protection against COVID-19.
Motu Research is committed to protecting the wellbeing, health and safety of our staff and visitors against COVID-19. We have immune compromised staff on our premises. We also want to maintain our institute’s efficiency and continuity, in a safe environment.
If you’d like to enter our premises or attend our offsite events, we’ll need you to:
be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 if eligible for the vaccine (double vaccinated, with a booster shot if necessary) – or show your medical vaccine exemption
show your vaccine passport, which we will log with the NZ Pass Verifier app
record your visit by scanning the NZ COVID Tracer App or complete our visitor register.
Otherwise, feel free to connect with us remotely (via Microsoft Teams / Zoom) or correspond with us by phone or email. We still want to engage with you!
Please don’t enter our premises if you:
have COVID-19, cold or flu symptoms
aren’t fully vaccinated for COVID-19 (and eligible for the vaccine)
don’t wish to disclose your vaccination status
don’t want to record your visit.
We continue to closely monitor the evolving pandemic situation, including keeping up to date with measures and controls for eliminating/mitigating COVID-19 risks in the workplace. Our policy may change as the situation changes.
This policy is effective immediately, until further notice.
