Members Covid Update

Following on from my email yesterday titled "a mixed response", Clubs New Zealand have provided their latest media release, which I provide below for your information. This qualifies the recent advice given around double vaccinations.

As usual, happy to field and respond to any questions or concerns you may have, but please keep in mind that this is not just specific to (our) Clubs, but the hospitality movement in general. 

As promised I will continue to keep you informed as information comes to hand.

The Covid Protection framework announce on the 22nd October, will give the club industry the certainty it needs to get back to doing what we love, without the need for snap lock downs, say Clubs New Zealand.

"Once the framework is in place Clubs New Zealand will encourage all Clubs New Zealand member clubs to use the vaccine certificate requirements so that they can operate at the green and orange levels without restriction", says Chief Executive Larry Graham.

"The Clubs New Zealand Board have agreed that the best way forward for our clubs is the use of vaccine certificates, this will allow club club activities to resume and most importantly it will help to protect the most vulnerable within our club and wider communities".

"The use of vaccine certificates will likely also extend to Club New Zealand events and sporting tournaments".

"The Board acknowledge that for some clubs there will be a high price to pay in order to get back to doing what we love. Some members who do not wish to be vaccinated will no longer be able to use the club and the vaccine mandate will apply to club staff".

"There is a lot of detail yet to be announced and we still need to ensure that the framework will provide the legal protection as intended, however, Clubs New Zealand are cautiously optimistic that this framework will see the club community back in action for summer".
