Vaccine passes are not required upon entry to any of our facilities and events.
Face masks aren't required when visiting any our libraries and service centres, but it's up to you and your situation. Have a look at the Unite Against COVID-19 website for more information on wearing masks.
Rapid Antigen Tests (RATs) community collection sites
Rapid antigen tests (RATs) can be ordered on the Bay of Plenty DHB website and then collected at a collection site. You can also order online via the COVID-19 Health Hub.
We don't require any contractors and service providers to be fully vaccinated when interacting with our staff at our offices and facilities outside of public meeting areas.
All appropriate COVID-19 health, hygiene and safety measures will remain in place at our offices and facilities such as face masks, hand sanitising and physical distancing.
In addition, we ask that if you or any member of your team is feeling unwell and showing COVID-19 symptoms please stay at home.
We appreciate that you may continue to have vaccination mandates or other COVID-19 protocols in place at your business. If you notify us in writing of your COVID-19 policy, we will inform our people of the need to adhere to this policy when visiting your business.
COVID-19 remains unpredictable and we retain the right to continue to conduct regular risk assessments as public health advice and WorkSafe guidance changes. It’s not out of the question, that future risk assessments may determine that certain contractor or service provider roles can only safely be carried out by those who have been vaccinated.
