At Northern Arena, we support the NZ Ministry of Health statement that getting vaccinated is a really important step towards keeping our workplaces, workmates, our whānau, and our communities safe and hence encourage our employees, contractors and members to be vaccinated.

Northern Arena follows both the NZ Government and Exercise Association guidelines in regards to all procedures around Covid 19.

This is however, a staff and member personal choice and therefore at this stage is not a compulsory requirement to be vaccinated to enter or work at Northern Arena.

If the governmental guidelines change, then Northern Arena would re-visit this policy at that time.
