COVID-19

Gresson Dorman & Co’s COVID-19 response

In order to provide a safe working environment for our people and our clients and enable our business to operate safely and with ease under the Orange level of the New Zealand Government’s COVID-19 Protection Framework, we are implementing a new COVID-19 response policy which requires all Gresson Dorman & Co’s people, clients, and any visitors to our offices to be fully vaccinated. All visitors to any of our offices will also need to comply with all other COVID-19 health and safety measures.

In accordance with this policy, which will come into effect on Friday 3 December 2021, we ask that you only visit our offices if you have been fully vaccinated with both doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine (or an alternative vaccine approved by the Minister of Health) or have a COVID-19 Vaccine Temporary Medical Exemption.

We also ask that you make an appointment before coming into our offices, by calling (03) 687 8004 (Timaru) or (03) 693 8207 (Geraldine).

We offer remote meeting options (e.g., by telephone or virtual meeting via Zoom or MSTeams) as an alternative to in-person meetings.

Office entry requirements from 3 December 2021

From 3 December 2021, you will be required to provide evidence of vaccination status on entry to our offices. We will accept the following as evidence of vaccination status:

  • An electronic version of your My Vaccine Pass; or
  • A printed copy of your My Vaccine Pass, a valid vaccination certificate or evidence of vaccination from your “My Health Account” and a valid form of personal identification (e.g., drivers’ licence or passport).

Purple vaccination record cards will not be accepted as evidence of vaccination status.

It is our expectation that when you visit our offices you will also:

  • Scan in using your QR Code or complete the manual contact tracing information sheet that is located at reception; and
  • Comply with Ministry of Health public health guidelines (e.g., social distancing) for the duration of your visit.

Our commitment

The Partners and staff at Gresson Dorman & Co are committed to providing seamless delivery of work for the firm’s clients at all levels of the COVID-19 Protection Framework.

We acknowledge that this is new territory for New Zealand, and navigating our way through COVID-19 in the workplace will require communication, trust and respect. To help us make your experience as seamless as possible, we would like to hear from you if you have any questions or concerns.
