SOUTHPOINT UPDATES FOR LEVEL 1: HOUSE RULES & PROTOCOLS
As we have now moved into Level 1 and there has been an easing of some of the regulations around the use of common spaces, we have made updates and amendments to our House Rules.
CHANGES TO THE USE OF COMMUNAL SPACES:
During Level 1, the following updates will be made to SouthPoint’s current House Rules:
- TV rooms and study rooms will begin to be opened and available for use by students, although social distancing will still need to be observed.
- Decommissioned facilities in the bathrooms and kitchens will be reinstated, to better accommodate the increased number of students returning to our buildings.
- Although we are in Level 1, students are still required to wear masks when in the common areas (anywhere in the building outside your room)
- Any student or visitor who is not wearing a mask will be denied entry into a SouthPoint building.
Visitors will be allowed entry into SouthPoint buildings as per our normal visitor guidelines.
Please note that only two visitors will be allowed ‘per door’ at any given time. i.e. you cannot have more than four people (e.g. two legal tenants and two visitors) in a two-sharing room and you cannot have more than two people (e.g. one legal tenant and one visitor) in a single room
The national curfew time has been extended from 10pm to midnight. When the curfew is in effect no tenant will be allowed entry or exist unless in the case of emergencies.
The changes above will be implemented across all the SouthPoint buildings, nationally in the next 5 business days.
Please note that the safety protocols and SouthPoint House Rules may be amended should be there a directive from the National Command Council that affect the organisation and one’s health.
