24/03/2022 - Traffic Light Framework Update

Kia ora koutoa,

Following yesterday’s Government announcement and update of the Covid-19 Traffic light framework, I am very pleased to advise a number of key changes for our upcoming winter season below:

From 11:59pm Friday 25th March:

  • There are no more gathering limits for outdoor activities. This means no number restrictions at any of our venues or events
  • Face masks are no longer required at outdoor settings
  • There is no requirement to scan in via QR code

From 11.59pm Monday 4th April:

  • My Vaccine Passes will no longer be required

This means that the first three days of our season (Saturday 2nd – Monday 4th April) will still require Vaccine Passes, which only effects the first round of matches for Division 1, Sunday League, and Mid-Week Open Men.

However, from the first round of Mid-Week Open Woman competition on Tuesday 5th April – there will no longer be a Vaccine Pass requirement for any grades.

The CHA team and I would like to thank you – our wonderful community, for supporting us as we have navigated our way through lockdowns, restrictions, mandates, guidelines, frameworks and requirements for the last 2 years.

We are now very excited to finally be in a position to (hopefully!) delivery a ‘normal’ Hockey Season to everyone in our community this winter!

Ngā mihi nui, and all the best for a great season!
