Contact tracing.

  • Centres will display the NZ COVID Tracer QR code poster.
  • Centres are not required to record or hold information of people who attend their venue.  The responsibility is on the individual to maintain a record of where they have been and who they have been in contact with to enable rapid contact tracing in the event they have contact with an active case.


  • There are no restrictions on numbers attending sports games, tournaments, or activities.
  • However, if outbreaks of COVID-19 occur in New Zealand, controls on gatherings could be implemented.

Physical distancing

  • When not playing it is recommended that people should still consider distancing themselves from people they do not know.
