Dingwall takes a cautious approach to L3
CEO Claudine Young has thanked the 200 Dingwall staff, children and young people for doing their bit as part of New Zealand’s “team of five million” to beat Covid-19.
“Everyone has helped to get through this with strength, resilience, patience, humour and kindness. It is the sacrifices we have all made that have allowed the government to reduce the alert level from today.”
However, Dingwall Trust will take a cautious approach to the new level of restrictions.
This means non-essential visits to the site cannot resume yet. Children and young people will continue their online learning on site and not attend school while social workers will keep facilitating non face-to-face contact between children and whanau.
Launch Transition to Adulthood personal advisors will carry on working from home to support young people online and by phone and text but from today will be able to visit in exceptional circumstances.
Most Dingwall staff will also continue to work from home, but a small number of extra essential workers will now be allowed on site while following strict safety protocols and working contactless where possible. Any delivery or maintenance companies are reminded reception remains contactless and to sign in outside.

“Level 3 is a steppingstone for us to take on the way back to business as usual, but relies on our continued compliance and vigilance,” says Claudine.
