COVID-19 restrictions
In this section you will find information on COVID-19, organisational resources and the detail of financial support available to the sector.

The Government released its new COVID-19 Strategy on 12 September which outlines protection requirements to help keep New Zealand safe with COVID-19 in the community. This Strategy replaces the old Covid Protection Framework (CPF) or Traffic Light System that was in place previously. 

There are no longer any restrictions for the Sport and Recreation Sector under the new COVID-19 Strategy. This means there are no longer any requirements around gathering or event numbers, mask wearing and vaccination certificates. 

Post arrival testing has also been removed as a requirement for anyone flying into New Zealand (for example athletes and teams) however it is recommended they complete tests on day one and day five after arrival.

Household contacts no longer need to self-isolate for seven days, however it’s recommended that they test daily for a five day period.

You can view the new Strategy which includes information on masks and testing if you are a positive COVID-19 case here.
