Council Services and Facilities at Red

From April 4 2022, vaccine passes will not be required at any of Napier City Council's facilities and services.

  • Businesses will still be able to use Vaccine Passes if they choose to.
  • There are no limits for outdoor activities, such as gatherings and events, and food and drink businesses. 
  • There is a 200-person limit for indoor gatherings and events.
  • If My Vaccine Passes are not used, the gathering limits remain unchanged.
  • You do not need to wear a face mask outdoors.
  • Other face mask rules remain unchanged — face masks are still required in most indoor settings.
