From Friday 3 December Porirua is at the orange setting of the traffic lights protection framework.
This means some changes to the way we work and live, as we put protections in place to help minimise the spread of Covid-19 in the community.
From 3 December vaccine passes will be required at all indoor council facilities, and all council staff must be fully vaccinated by 17 January 2021. These measures are in place to protect health and safety of our community and our staff.
Our facilities at orange setting
At orange, public facilities are open. Visitors must scan in and wear masks (other than when swimming or eating/drinking) and stay one metre from others. In some cases, numbers in a venue will be limited to meet the one metre spacing requirement.
