  • All events should be postponed.  

  • Meetings must be postponed or moved online.  

Alert Level TWO:

  • Meetings and events during alert level 2 can go ahead, adhering to strict level two Government protocol. If you cannot follow the Government guidelines, including strict social distancing, hygiene, and contact tracing, you will need to move your meeting online. Please see further below for instructions on setting up Zoom. 

Alert Level ONE: 

  • There are no restrictions on gatherings, but please ensure contact tracing measures are in place.

Make sure that you regularly check the Covid-19 website, strictly adhering to all guidelines and keeping yourselves updated.  

 

ZOOM

Zoom accounts can be set up for free. To set up your account follow this link https://zoom.us/signup  

Key points to know: 

- Each meeting can host up to 100 participants. 

- You will have an unlimited amount of meetings each month to use for full club meetings or club exec meetings. 

- Each meeting on the free plan is limited to 40 minutes. To get around this just reopen the call once the call cuts out and you will be able to continue for another 40-minute call. 

If you need any help setting up your account you are more than welcome to contact Casey at casey.huffstutler@youngfarmers.co.nz
