Latest Covid Update 14/08/20

The Prime Minister has announced that in Auckland we will remain in Level lockdown until midnight Wednesday 26th August.

For your information and guidance here is a summary of the planned approach to be taken by our Council each alert level.

Alert Level 3

All Auckland Council venues across the Auckland region will remain closed to the public.

During this time, we will reprioritise the use of our venues to support community services like health agencies and food banks.


This time, there are some key changes in the measures and restrictions we need to follow, which are:

  • From 11:59am on Wednesday 19 August, under Alert Levels 3 , all businesses and services are required to display the official NZ COVID Tracer QR code posters in a prominent place at or near the main entrances to each of their premises. Click here to learn more and to get your poster.
  • At Alert Level 3, people are strongly encouraged to wear a face covering when you’re out and about.
  • Further details are available from the Unite against COVID-19 website.

Venue Hire

If you operate a venue for hire, we recommend you include a statement about COVID-19 in your hire agreement terms and conditions. Here is an example from our Venue Hire terms and conditions:


By entering this Agreement, the Hirer warrants and confirms to abide by all rules and directives published and updated by the government from time to time at The Hirer understands and accepts that Auckland Council may immediately terminate this Agreement if the Hirer breaches any of the government rules or directives.


Looking ahead

The coming weeks will obviously be impacted by the alert level strategy announced this afternoon. We will continue to keep in touch with you, meanwhile if you have any questions or concerns, please contact your relationship advisor.
