Napier City Council has re-run the risk assessment for all of its facilities within the Traffic light settings, using the most recent COVID-19 Protection Framework Guidance for Local Government. As a result of this assessment, Napier Aquatic Centre will require the use of My Vaccine Passes from 15 January 2022.
This re-assessment considered factors such as
The requirement for My Vaccine Passes from 15th January 2022 coincides with the return of many of the Aquatic Centre’s close contact activities.
COVID-19 poses a very real and serious risk, and opting in to using My Vaccine Passes in light of the re-assessment is the best way to keep our customers and our team safe.
A facility such as ours has to limit customers based on the number of people who can visit while keeping a physical distance of at least 1m. The capacity for the Ivan Wilson complex will be limited to 150 people, with an additional 50 people in the Old Pool. Allan’s Pool (Flanders Ave side) and the gym are separate areas and capacity will be over and above these limits for the main two pool areas.
There are a number of measures we have in place to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our customers, team members, and communities. Some of these include:
We will refuse entry to people who cannot show a valid My Vaccine Pass. Businesses which have opted in to the My Vaccine Pass system but fail to check certificates or exemptions can be fined up to $12,000, or $15,000 if the Courts impose a fine.
At orange and green level the standard cancellation fees will apply as per our Conditions of Hire Agreement. If programmes are cancelled in red level (due to another COVID outbreak) this will be on a case by case basis.
The staff at the Napier Aquatic Centre have the New Zealand Pass Verifier App on a device and will use this to ensure everyone entering the facility is scanned and verified as double vaccinated.
