New COVID Alert Levels

The Government announced a further de-escalation in alert levels across New Zealand on Monday 21st September.

For Auckland this means a move to Alert Level 2 with an increase in the gatherings limit to 100 from 11.59pm on Wednesday 23rd October. For the rest of Aotearoa New Zealand, the move to Alert Level 1 starts 11.59pm Monday 21st September.

What this means for Auckland:

  • Sport and recreation can take place as long as contact tracing and appropriate hygiene measures are in place
  • However gatherings, where people come into close contact, are limited to 100, including all players, spectators and officials
  • Multiple gatherings can take place in a defined space as long as those gatherings remain separated at all times
  • It’s still important to maintain physical distancing when out and about; masks are required on public transport and planes
  • You can travel regionally but Aucklanders should take their alert level restrictions with them
  • If you are travelling to another region for an event, check with the organisers to see if you can participate in that event safely
  • Naturally anyone with COVID-19 symptoms must isolate and get advice about getting tested

What this means for the rest of Aotearoa New Zealand:

  • There are no gatherings limits but you should continue to focus on good hygiene measures
  • Masks or PPE are not mandatory but are encouraged on public transport and planes
  • If you are organising any kind of event or tournament, you should keep in mind that alert levels could change at any time, and you may have to modify the format, postpone or cancel the gathering, depending on the situation
  • Naturally anyone with COVID-19 symptoms must isolate and get advice about getting tested

NZ Maori Haupoi Life Members

On the evening of the Powhakangahau, at the NZ Maori Haupoi Tournament 2019, two special individuals were inducted as Life Members of NZ Maori Haupoi.  Jubilee Irimana from Waiariki and Josie Morete from Te Tairawhiti.

Jubilee has been in and around hockey for decades now and as well as many other sports.  Living in Rotorua sure does provide many opportunities for Jubilee to partake in numerous hockey events.  You can often see him down beside a hockey turf with his camera taking snaps of players.  Congratulations Jubilee.

Josie Morete is the godmother of Te Tairawhiti hockey and beyond.  She has ties to so many Rohe simply through her relationships and generosity around sharing her knowledge of maori hockey.  Congratulations Josie.

Maori Hockey is truly blessed to have both Josie and Jubilee as Life Members.
