We are monitoring the exposure of COVID-19 on a daily basis. Currently all our events are continuing as planned. If New Zealand's containment strategy is unsuccessful, our in-person events will continue but will instead be conducted online. You can read up to date information about the precautions you should be taking on the COVID-19 website.

You will be able to join our events on a school or home device and participate via the internet. Details for connecting to an event will be provided within the detail of each event.
