COVID-19 Coronavirus: ASMS is still open for business

In this time when coronavirus precautions are having a significant impact on the way that New Zealanders travel, conduct business, and go about their daily lives, I wanted to assure you that we are still open for business.

By taking sensible precautions we can continue to deliver courses and enable you to continue to operate your business.

The Ministry of Health advises that the symptoms of COVID-19 are:
  • a cough;
  • high temperature; and
  • shortness of breath.

If you have any of these symptoms or have been in contact with someone who has been confirmed as having COVID-19, please do not come to the course. Your first priority is to self-isolate and telephone Healthline on 0800 358 5453. Once you have done that please let us know that you won’t be able to attend the course because of possible COVID-19 exposure, and we will hold your enrolment over to a future course.

Please also be aware that if a large proportion of people on a given course are unable to attend then we may have to defer the course until a later date so that we can continue to cover costs.

Of course, we may also have to defer a course if all of our instructors are required to self-isolate, or are unable to travel because of dependent children who are required to self-isolate. If that happens we will advise you as soon as possible that the course will be unable to proceed.

For more information on COVID-19 see the Ministry of Health website.
