What COVID-19 Red means for Alliotts and our clients

As most of you will have heard, Auckland moved up to red in the COVID-19 traffic light system this week.

red traffic light

We have been at this alert level before so we are taking a similar approach as follows:

  1. We want to limit client contact so the office won’t be open for meetings till we see how the case numbers go, but we will review this week by week. If we are able to allow meetings in the office, only those who are fully vaccinated will be admitted, as is the current policy. 
  2. If you are a close contact or have symptoms of Omicron, please follow the Ministry of Health guidelines, get tested and isolate. Please do not come to our office. 

At this stage, we are not sure of timeframes and how long red status will last, but we want everyone to take care and if you have any questions please let us know. We will keep in touch and advise of any changes.

In the meantime, we welcome meetings via phone or video (Zoom, MS Teams or Skype). Simply contact our office on +64 9 520 9200 as you normally would, and our receptionist will be able to take or forward messages to our team. Or feel free to call your Alliotts accountant directly on their mobile.
