As the global COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, our thoughts go out to you and we hope that wherever you are, you remain safe and well during this disruptive time.
Our newsletter is a little different this month, as we want to provide you with an update on the circumstances in New Zealand and let you know how Lincoln University has been responding to the pandemic.
New Zealand in lockdown Last week, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced a four-week lockdown period for New Zealand to help minimise the spread of COVID-19 and its impact on the country’s health system. Therefore, the Lincoln campus has been physically closed since last Thursday. Only essential services remain open and people are required to stay at home as much as possible. 上周，新西兰总理宣布了为期四周的禁闭期，以帮助新西兰最大限度地减少COVID-19的传播及其对该国卫生系统的影响。因此，自上周四以来，林肯校园已经关闭。只有必要的服务仍然开放，人们被要求尽可能呆在家里。 Classes have been suspended until 20 April. From 20 April onwards, students can begin studying online. All course materials and assessments will be available. It is a challenging time, but the wellbeing and academic success of all Lincoln students remain our top priorities. 停课至4月20日。从4月20日起，学生可以开始网上学习。所有课程材料和评估都将提供。这是一个充满挑战的时代，但所有林肯学生的幸福和学业成功仍然是我们的首要任务。
