Events Sector Voluntary Code addressing COVID-19
The COVID Code is specifically aimed at the events sector to reduce COVID-19 related risks.
There are no specific controls or requirements in place around holding events in Alert Level 1, regardless of numbers involved, however the Ministry of Health continues to encourage individuals to uphold good hygiene practices and contact tracing. The code outlines best practice expectations to be applied to the events sector to enable good hygiene standards and facilitate contact tracing. Note that any operator of an event still needs to have developed and implemented health and safety measures as per existing legal obligations. The processes contained in the COVID Code can be overlaid into these existing systems and processes to reduce the likelihood and impact of any COVID-19 outbreak.
