As of 11.59pm on Wednesday 13 April, Tāmaki Makaurau and the whole of Aotearoa is at the Orange setting of the COVID-19 Protection Framework’s traffic light system.

Life under Orange continues to feel a bit more 'normal', with no capacity limits or distancing requirements at indoor or outdoor venues.

While the use of face masks continues to be strongly encouraged whenever you leave the house, the list of locations where they are required has been reduced. You can find the full list on the Unite Against Covid website.

As of 5 April, vaccine passes are no longer required at Auckland Council’s sites and facilities. You can find out more about the council’s overall approach to vaccination on our website.

Check before you go

Visit our website for up-to-date information on interruptions to our services and facilities due to staff illness or unavailability. Unwell staff or staff having to isolate as a result of being a household contact can affect our rosters and require a reduction in hours or temporary closures. This can also be affected by the ability of our contracted suppliers to supply their essential services, like cleaning.

Here’s what you can do to keep yourself and your whānau safe:

  • Get a booster if you’re over 18 and it has been 3 months since your last dose.
  • Wear a face mask whenever you leave the house.
  • If you have cold or flu symptoms, isolate immediately and call Healthline for advice on getting a test.

More information on life at Orange is available on the Unite Against COVID-19 website.
