COVID-19 Protection Framework – Green

Green is when there are some COVID-19 cases in the community and some imported cases. Community transmission will be limited and COVID-19 hospitalisations at a manageable level. The health system will be ready to respond, including primary care, public health, and hospitals. 

How we stay safe at Green: 

  • Record keeping and scanning will be required 
  • Face coverings are mandatory on flights and encouraged indoors 

Where we can go at Green: 

  • Public facilities 
  • Retail 
  • Workplaces 
  • ECEs, schools, kura and tertiary providers 
  • Specified outdoor community events 
  • Regional boundary restrictions won’t apply. 

Places with vaccination certificate requirements 

There will be no limits if vaccination certificates are used for: 

  • Hospitality 
  • Gatherings (e.g. weddings, places of worship, marae) 
  • Events (indoor/outdoor) 
  • Close contact businesses 
  • Gyms 

Places where vaccination certificates are not used 

If a business, organisation or service, doesn’t request proof of vaccine, restrictions will apply. 

  • Hospitality — up to 100 people, based on 1m physical distancing, seated and separated 
  • Gatherings (e.g. weddings, places of worship, marae) — up to 100 people, based on 1m physical distancing
