As of midday Friday 29 May 2020, the Government has relaxed restrictions in Alert Level 2 for the number of attendees allowed at any public gathering - to a maximum of 100 guests.
Multiple groups of 100 are now allowed in event facilities, provided that they are in separate ‘defined spaces’ - and so long as there are systems to prevent intermingling between groups in common spaces, such as entrances, exits and toilets.
A 'defined space' is described as:
• an indoor space that has permanent or temporary walls or partitions that divide it from other spaces.
• a seated open air space (eg. stadium) or an outdoor space divided so that everyone in one space is at least 2 metres from those in another space.
This information is sourced from COVID-19.govt.nz and the Ministry of Health website.
At this stage, with changes happening rapidly and the consideration for Alert Level 1 to be announced no later than 22 June, if you are planning to promote an upcoming event that has seating requirements, please contact your Account Manager to discuss how you would like to proceed with physical distancing at your venue.
Please note that all events occurring within the next 3 months (until August 31 2020) that are listed with us, will have refund fees waived for any cancellations that are forced due to COVID-19 related reasons.
