Vaccine passes at Council facilities under the simplified COVID-19 Protection Framework: RED

Vaccine passes will no longer be required at all of Nelson City Council’s facilities from April 5, in line with central government’s simplification of the COVID-19 Protection Framework announced this week.

Nelson City Council’s Incident Management Team Leader Alec Louverdis says that wearing an effective mask when inside will be more important than ever once vaccine passes are not required at Council facilities. 

“Nelson is still recording hundreds of cases, and we all need to do our bit to avoid unnecessary strain on our health system, even as restrictions ease. Although COVID-19 is in our community, protecting our vulnerable communities and health system from the virus remains at the heart of the decisions we make around COVID-19. We want everyone to enjoy our public facilities safely.”
Council venues will not require vaccine passes for Council-run events, but at privately-run events vaccine pass requirements will be at the discretion of the event organiser.
Nelson Council facilities include:

  • Customer Service Centre, Trafalgar Street
  • Elma Turner, Stoke, Nightingale Libraries – a click and collect service will continue for people who still require it
  • Riverside Pool and Gym (Nayland Pool closed from March 27 for Winter)
  • Pūtangitangi Greenmeadows Centre 
  • Brook Valley Holiday Park
  • Founders Heritage Park
  • Isel and Broadgreen House
  • Waahi Taakaro Golf Course
  • Trafalgar Centre
  • Marina Office
  • Pascoe Street Transfer Station
