Sport and Rec and the COVID-19 Protection Framework

Page updated 13 April 2022.

The Government announced that as of 11.59pm on Wednesday, 13 April, the whole of New Zealand will move to the Orange setting of the COVID-19 Protection Framework. Please see what this means for our facility below.

The University of Auckland has revoked its Covid-19 Vaccination and Testing Policy, in line with the Government’s announcement to end the requirements for vaccine passes. This means that from 11.59pm on Monday 4 April, anyone attending our facilities will no longer be required to have a valid My Vaccine Pass.

For those of you who wish not to come into our facilities at this setting, we do have an online gym membership now available, which gives you access to hundreds of pre-recorded and live streamed classes.
