Samson Corporation COVID-19 Response

31/08/2020

We have a continually evolving situation with COVID-19 having been declared a global pandemic by World Health Organisation, as the New Zealand Government makes new recommendations or enforces some form of lock down, Samson Corporation will follow these instructions and update tenants as required.

As of now Auckland is at Alert Level 2.5, the rest of New Zealand is at Alert Level 2

Contacting Samson

Samson staff are in the office but have restrictions in place, if you need to collect keys please email us in advance and when you arrive at our office be sure to sign by using your tracing app. If you are scheduled to have a meeting with a Samson staff member please remember to wear a face mask. 

 

Building Security and Access:

All multi-tenanted buildings have returned to normal security settings, if we are required to move levels again we will lock off the buildings to the public again. Tenants can access their tenancy 24/7 by using their access card and/or key.

 

Cleaning and Waste:

Each multi-tenanted building is being cleaned again as normal, please note that all common touch points are wiped on a daily basis with our regular contract clean. Remember we do not manage your office clean and therefore you need to be in touch in your own cleaners also. Waste is also being collected as normal.

Contact Tracing:

In the event that there is a positive COVID-19 case from someone that has been entering the building we will need to participate in contact tracing, therefore, we ask that each tenancy keep a record of who has entered the building during all alert levels. Please contact Samson if someone from your business returns a positive test or if they are the close contact of a positive test so we can let others know.

It is now a Government requirement that each business displays a QR code at the entrance of their business for each visitor to check in, Samson have had these on display since we first returned to Level 2. It is easy to set up when you follow the instrcutions, but we are happy to help if required https://covid19.govt.nz/business-work-and-money/business/get-your-qr-code-poster/
