The NZ Government has recently issued advice about cancelling mass gatherings/events. This is an important aspect of our public health strategy to delay the onset of community transmission of COVID-19, and to limit the infection’s spread if community transmission occurs.
Cancelling mass gatherings will help slow the spread of COVID-19 in New Zealand, reduce the number of people infected, and protect those who are more vulnerable to severe illness.
To that end, many events are being cancelled or postponed until later in the year. We urge you to contact event organisers directly to ascertain the status of your event before travelling.
