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!
