  • All NPDC facilities remain open under the Government’s Red Traffic Light Covid protection system while following the safety rules.
  • Omicron is now established in Aotearoa with close contacts currently in isolation in New Plymouth.
  • We indicated last year that if the Government moved to Red, we would most likely move to vaccination passes for our main public facilities.
  • From Wednesday 26 January any member of the public who enters our facilities will have to show a vax pass.
  • Thousands of people uses these services each week and requiring members of the public to have a vaccine pass for these facilities gives us another layer of protection against the highly infectious Omicron in the fight against the global pandemic.
  • It shouldn’t be an issue for the 93% of the population who are fully vaccinated.
  • We’re excluding the Civic Centre on Liardet Street because of a lower volume of customers.
  • Thank for your continued support of our staff as we implement vaccination passes.
  • We also offer a contactless service so don’t hesitate to pick up the phone or send us an email and we’ll get your job done.
  • We’re monitoring our Covid response on a daily basis and have robust plans in place to manage a range of future scenarios, including some staff continuing to work remotely.
