Life at Orange
As at 11.59pm, Thursday 2 December 2021, Waipā moved to the Orange setting in the COVID Protection Framework (traffic light system).
Waipā District Council will require vaccine passes to be sighted before entry to any council-managed facilities from 8am, Monday 13 December 2021.
For anyone aged 12 years three months and over, their My Vaccine Pass will need to be sighted for entry to:
- Te Awamutu Library
- Cambridge Library
- Te Awamutu Museum
- Council buildings, including front counters and meeting spaces
- Council-managed community halls
- Council dog control facilities
GoWaipa-managed pool and gym facilities also require vaccine passes for entry from Friday 3 December 2021.
While the move was not an easy one to make, it was based around the health and safety of both Council's frontline staff and those vulnerable members of our community across the district.
