Napier City Council is committed to ensuring we continue to deliver our essential services to the community. We are constantly planning and following Ministry of Health advice regarding community and staff health. Council encourages the community to follow the advice, guidance and direction of the Ministry of Health and the Government in their role as the lead agencies.

Napier is now in Alert Level 2

Here's what this means:
  • There are no restrictions on who can be included in your household bubble.
  • You can go to work, and all businesses and services can open but legally must follow public health rules.
  • Early learning services, schools, kura and tertiary education facilities are open to everyone.
  • Even if you have been vaccinated, you still need to follow the rules to keep everyone safe. 
  • We encourage you to wear a face covering when you cannot maintain physical distance from others. 

  • You legally must wear a face covering if you are aged 12 or over when:

    • on public transport and at departure points — for example, airports, train stations and bus stops
    • on flights
    • in taxis or ride-share vehicles
    • visiting a healthcare facility
    • visiting an aged care facility
    • inside retail businesses — for example, supermarkets, shopping malls, indoor marketplaces and takeaway food stores
    • visiting the public areas within courts and tribunals, local and central Government agencies, and social service providers with customer service counters.
  • Everyone aged 12 and over legally must keep a record of where they have been when visiting certain places so contact tracing can happen quickly. You must do this at all Alert Levels.
  • Anyone wanting to travel across an Alert Level boundary needs to check whether they are eligible to travel.
