From week 2, Monday 9th May, wearing of masks at the College is optional. We do however, highly recommend students wear their mask indoors.
At Orange, face masks are no longer mandatory at school. However public health advice is that masks continue to be strongly encouraged when indoors. At Liston College we will continue to promote this. Wearing a mask is a key health measure that slows the spread of COVID-19 in indoor settings.
We ask that visitors to the school, including parents and whānau, wear a mask whenever they are indoors on school grounds.
At Orange, secondary school students are still required to wear a face mask on school or public transport.
Other health measures
We will continue to keep all the other health measures in place at school that we know slow the spread of COVID-19. These include ensuring our indoor spaces are well-ventilated, maintaining good hand hygiene and cough and sneeze etiquette, appropriate physical distancing whenever we can and, most importantly, staying home if we are sick. As we move into the winter months, we would ask parents to ensure any student who is unwell with a cough or cold remains at home until fully recovered.
