Information on COVID-19 Alert Level 2

Alert Level 2 for social sector organisations

Alert Level 2 allows for businesses to open and services to be provided as normal where this can be done safely.

Operating safely under Alert Level 2 involves:

  • maintaining physical distancing of one metre in the workplace unless other mitigating measures are in place
  • keeping your distance from people you don’t know in public (ideally two metres)
  • maintaining high levels of personal hygiene and workplace cleaning
  • keeping accurate contact records to enable contact tracing if required (contact tracing information on the Unite Against COVID-19 website)
  • checking with clients whether they are unwell or know of any COVID-19 risk
  • meeting all health and safety requirements.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Face covering (masks, scarfs and bandanas)

Information and guidance for wearing masks on the Unite Against COVID-19 website.

Please note that the use of face covering is in addition to the general health advice i.e. regularly disinfect surfaces; wash and dry hands, cough and sneeze into elbow, don’t touch your face; if you have cold or flu symptoms stay at home and ring Healthline or your GP.

Face covering is recommended when physical distancing is not possible in Alert Level 2.
