​CLUB NIGHT UPDATE (Traffic Lights System)

COVID-19 Information – COVID-19 Protection Framework (Traffic Lights System)

The Government has announced that the New Zealand COVID-19 Protection Framework (CPF) will come into effect from 11:59pm on 2 December 2021.

We want to provide our volunteers, officials, athletes and spectators with a safe environment so they can enjoy athletics and club nights. A safe community is a COVID-19-free community and we believe vaccination is the best available protection against the spread of COVID-19.

As such, the PNAHC Committee has made the decision to make club nights and events COVID My Vaccine Pass Certificate events, for each and all club nights for the foreseeable future.

At club nights from Tuesday 7 December 2021, all people aged 13 and over will be asked to provide printed or digital evidence of their My Vaccine Pass Certificate to a PNAHC Volunteer through the current entrances used during the current club nights. To streamline the process for future club nights the club will hold a database and check in people each week. Everyone will still be required to enter through the entrance as usual.
