Tairāwhiti will transition into the CPF’s Orange Setting at 11.59pm on Thursday 30 December.
Orange is designed to reduce increasing community transmission that is putting pressure on the public health system and at-risk people.
So what does Orange look like?
🌳All outdoor parks, fields and playgrounds can open for use. You can use playground equipment and benches in public spaces.
🏋️♀️Gyms can open if vaccine passes are checked.
🏊♀️Public facilities like council-owned swimming pools can open subject to capacity limits.
⚽️Sports and recreational facilities can open but will need to consider specific additional rules that may apply for the commercial premises (eg. cafes).
↔️If a business, event or organisation does not wish to request proof of vaccination, they will usually have to operate within more strict limits on capacity and space requirements.
📱Record keeping and scanning of the COVID-19 Tracer App is required
😷Face coverings are mandatory on flights, public transport, in taxis, retail, some education settings, and public venues. Face coverings are encouraged whenever you leave the house.
🥵You should stay home if you are unwell and call your doctor or Healthline on 0800 358 5433 for advice about getting tested.
🙌If you use vaccine passes there are no limits on the number of people that can attend.
5️⃣0️⃣If you do not check vaccine passes at a gathering, then the capacity limit is determined by the size of the facility allowing for 1m2 of space per person. You can have a maximum of 50 people.
👧This capacity limit includes children. Children under the age of 12 who cannot be vaccinated are treated as if they have a vaccine pass.
❌This capacity limit excludes workers.
