Face Masks at Red

Face masks help reduce the spread of COVID-19. We encourage you to wear a face mask whenever you leave the house.

A face covering will need to be a mask attached to the head by loops around the ears or head. This means scarves, bandannas, or t-shirts cannot be used.

At Red you must wear a face covering if you are:

  • on domestic flights
  • on public transport
  • at arrival and departure points of public transport services
  • in taxis and ride share vehicles
  • in retail businesses
  • at public venues/facilities (excluding swimming pools)
  • at pharmacies
  • at veterinary services and animal health and welfare services
  • at courts and tribunals
  • in specified social services
  • at public area of premises operate by NZ Post Limited
  • at premises operated by a central govt agency, a local authority, or NZ Police
  • at healthcare services
  • at aged care facilities
  • inside at schools, for example a classroom and assemblies. This includes students in Years 4 to 13 and staff
  • inside at tertiary education facilities
  • when visiting a licensed early childhood service
  • at food and drink businesses, close-proximity businesses (for example hairdressers and beauty salons), and events and gatherings.You can take your mask off to eat, drink or exercise.

It is strongly encouraged that you wear a face covering everywhere else.
