Vaccination Certificate Requirements for Piping and Dancing Association Events 


New Zealand’s Covid-19 Protection Framework will change to the “Traffic Light” system for designated regions once all District Health Boards within that region reach the 90% Fully Vaccinated target.
For the Auckland region this target is likely to be reached by December 2021.

 What does this mean for Piping and Dancing Competitions?

To allow our competitions to proceed without disruption, all attendees eligible for vaccination must have a vaccination certificate to be admitted to the venue. This includes all competitors, judges, pipers, organising committees, spectators etc. Societies will need to include this condition on their competition schedules, and this will become a condition of the Centre permitting process. Societies will also need to arrange for vaccination certificates to be checked as people arrive at the venue. 

In Short: 

To ensure participation/attendance in upcoming competitions, all eligible Piping and Dancing Association members (all those 12 years and over) must be vaccinated and have a vaccination certificate. 

If you are not yet vaccinated, PLEASE GET VACCINATED NOW so you can continue to participate.
