Key messages for events

29 January 2021

Further to our eDM earlier today, please find below additional information received from the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (DPMC) this afternoon:

"New Zealand is currently at Alert Level 1 with no restrictions on travel, gatherings or events. While there have been recent border related cases, thousands of tests across the Auckland and Northland regions have shown no evidence of community transmission.

The situation is still developing and the recent cases make it more important than ever that we are all doing our bit to keep New Zealanders safe and our communities free from COVID-19 during the coming summer events.

Resources and support are available to help you deliver events safely. These include a new video featuring Dr Ashley Bloomfield. A shorter version of the viral ‘Public Service announcement’ hit from our summer festivals, this version has Dr Bloomfield reminding event attendees, staff, or anyone else watching of the 4 golden rules – wash, santise, scan, and turning Bluetooth on without the dubstep backing. It’s perfect for conferences, expos, trade shows, seminar and other settings."

Other resources available include:

The two public service announcement videos featuring Dr. Ashley Bloomfield can be viewed at the following links with raw video files available for presentation at events and gatherings across New Zealand.


Thank you for helping to make events unstoppable.
