Covid 19 Level 1 update
New Zealand has now moved to Emergency Alert level 1. The following information will help guide you as to what we are offering you for marriage preparation.
We are now offering online and some ‘face to face’ course options. Please contact the office to discuss your needs. Due to the nature and volumes of the couples we deal with this is the safest option for now. Online courses are convenient as you can do them from the comfort of your own home!
For the face to face courses we ask that if you have any of the following you choose an online option
- Cough, cold, runny nose, sneezing, flu, high temperature
- Feeling unwell
- Diarrhoea, vomiting
- Have been in contact with a known covid -19 person (s) who are in isolation or quarantine
- Have been in contact with anyone who has currently been tested for covid – 19
Please call the office or cancel your face to face course with the Marriage Educator you have chosen.
Our aim is to get all engaged couples getting married in September 2020 – February 2021 through our courses now. If you have a Hotmail or Gmail account please check your spam folder regularly as often our emails are redirected there, thank you.
