Increased cleaning measures:
We’ve purchased specialist hand sanitiser, disposable cleaning wipes and microbe shield spray for extra cleaning measures. We ensure the following practices are implemented:
1. Individual workstation clean and hygienic by regularly wiping down surfaces and objects, e.g. desks, keyboards, phones, computer mice, etc.
2. Always wash your hands before eating food and try not to touch your face.
3. Use hand sanitiser in the absence of soap and water.
4. Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue.
Once we return to Alert Level 3 Gathered will begin shipping online orders.
Online orders will be packaged and sent according to the health and safety guidelines set in place by the NZ government.
We will be using contactless pick up and delivery to ensure the safety of our wonderful local courier team and staff.
