Port News: COVID-19: lockdowns, bubbles and vaccines

As August brought New Zealand back into lockdown, LPC remained committed to keeping Canterbury’s supply chain moving 24/7.

With the support of our COVID-19 response team, we were able to quickly snap back into lockdown protocols to keep our people, customers and community safe.

This included increased PPE and hygiene measures, social distancing, creating work bubbles and all non-essential staff working from home.

We have also been working closely with Canterbury District Health Board and our unions to vaccinate our team against COVID-19.

As at the end of August, we are now sitting at over 95% of our border-facing staff vaccinated, with remaining staff and their household contacts being vaccinated over the next couple of months with a range of on-site and community clinics.

We know that the vaccine provides an added layer of protection for our people, and we are committed to protecting our workmates, our whānau and the community.
