Covid19 - How does the Traffic Light System work?


This information was included in a Newsletter from the Registrar-General, Internal Affairs (28 Jan '22)

The Omicron variant is providing new challenges this year with information circulating from various sources, both official and unofficial, about how to apply the traffic light system (COVID-19 Protection Framework). Therefore, it may be difficult for you to know which advice to follow.

Internal Affairs does not set the rules for the traffic light system so the advice is that you should always go directly to the two websites from the government and Ministry of Health to answer any questions you have:

Information about COVID-19 from the Ministry of Health
Government advice about COVID-19 on Govt.nz

Under the traffic light settings, weddings and civil union ceremonies can go ahead but there may be different restrictions depending on whether at GreenOrange or Red and if those attending have a My Vaccine Pass

At Red according to https://covid19.govt.nz/traffic-lights/life-at-red/gatherings-and-visits-at-red/public-and-private-gatherings-at-red/:

I hope this helps with your planning
