Coronavirus update for ENZ stakeholders

ENZ is continuing to closely monitor reports of the new Coronavirus (2019-nCoV). Here’s an update on what is happening nationally and across the sector.

National response

The New Zealand Government says it is alert to the issue but not alarmed. The Ministry of Health advises the risk of an outbreak in New Zealand is low, but it is monitoring the situation closely. It will advise if any public health measures become necessary.

As a precautionary measure, the Government is taking an all-of-Government approach with meetings starting today. ENZ is participating in these meetings, which are led by the Ministry of Health.

International education sector

We are working closely with the Ministry of Education to share information and communicate with the international education sector.

To date, we have responded to some questions from education providers about the situation. We are monitoring issues, and developing responses and information for providers.

We will provide further updates as needed next week.

Key sources of information and advice are:
