Vaccination Certificates + Traffic Light Levels Announced For NZ Live Shows

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced this morning details for the much-anticipated vaccination certificates programme, along with a forthcoming new system of three traffic light levels (Green, Orange, Red) that will allow live events to operate at various degrees of restriction. The new COVID-19 Protection Framework will come into effect once 90% of eligible New Zealanders are fully vaccinated. You can read the full details outlined on the official government website HERE — including info on vaccine certificate requirements for each level (Red being most restricted), how to check your Covid-19 vaccination records (which are available now) and more community resources. Notably: "Businesses, events, organisations, community, and a range of sectors may legally choose to implement a vaccination entry requirement for customers. If a business, organisation or service does not wish to request proof of vaccine, they will have to operate with strict limits on capacity and space requirements. They may need to close in Orange and/or Red levels."

Today's announcement featured excellent news for our struggling venues: "At orange – everything remains open, but because of vaccine certificates, all of the gathering limits currently in place for events, gatherings or hospitality can lift."

Our team welcomes the use of vaccination certificates in Aotearoa, as they will allow live events to happen under the safest conditions possible for those in our community most at risk from Covid-19. We encourage you to help protect yourself, friends and family by getting vaccinated if you haven't done so already (our team is now all double vaccinated) — you can get the ball rolling by booking HERE.
