COVID-19

Last Updated: 10 September 2021

On 9 September the Wellington region moved to “Delta” Covid Level 2 until further notice.

At Alert Level 2:

  • There are no restrictions on who can be included in your household bubble.
  • You can go to work, and all businesses and services can open but legally must follow public health rules.
  • Early learning services, schools, kura and tertiary education facilities are open to everyone.
  • Even if you have been vaccinated, you still need to follow the rules to keep everyone safe.

Indoor sports facilities such as gyms, swimming pools, dance studios and health clubs can open, but with extra safety measures.

Do not worry, during this time you will be able to access all the essentials you need, including medicine and food.

Community Sport

At Alert Level 2, you can do your usual sport and recreation activities if you can do them safely.

HK Senior football on weekend 11 and 12 September can take place.

Public parks and playgrounds are open.

Professional leagues can go ahead at Alert Level 2 because they take place in controlled workplaces.

At Alert Level 2, team sports events can continue. These are limited to 50 people in indoors venues and 100 people at outdoor venues. The 100-person limit includes players and spectators. Referees, officials and other workers providing services to a sports game are not included in the 100 people.

 If a sports ground has more than 1 field, you can play multiple games at the same time, as long as each group is separated. Groups should try not to mix with each other or share common facilities such as changing rooms at the same time.

 If you are organising a sports event, game or practise, make sure everyone records their visit. If you are watching the event, stand 2 metres away from others.

 We are also asking that teams leave changing rooms clean and tidy, and all rubbish is removed after each use, to support better hygiene in the spaces. And that different teams do not share changing rooms at the same time.

Please check the Capital Football website or Facebook page for the latest info.

Junior and Youth Football has now finished for the season.

  • If you are unwell, do NOT go outside.
