COVID-19 Update #6

Posted May 10, 2020

The government announced on Monday that New Zealand will move into Alert Level 2 on Thursday 14 May 2020.

The overriding message is to keep it small, maintain social distancing and good hygiene practises. This will be reviewed on Monday 25th May. Guidance for the sporting sector is still being developed around this from Sport NZ and they are hopeful this will be available by the end of this week.

We encourage everyone to take this time to ensure you have processes in place for the requirements that you MUST do before resuming. Please review the checklist included in our last newsletter to ensure you have covered these off in your plan.


  • You   MUST have contact tracing
  • You MUST have extensive hygiene practices – for both individuals and shared equipment
  • You  MUST be social distancing & have control in any gathering situations
  • Please continue to enforce the “If you are sick, stay at home” message

The latest Sport NZ guidelines for Level 2 are also attached.

We will continue to develop our guidelines and have these out as soon as possible.

Any questions or queries please forward to

Stay safe all,
IHNZ Board
