Tāmaki Makaurau enters the new Covid Protection Framework on Friday 3 December 2021. 

Covid Protection Framework

The COVID-19 Protection Framework brings us an opportunity to be freer to move and live with less disruption and offers the stability needed to plan for the future. It introduces a new traffic light system to manage COVID-19 in the community: 

  • Green 

  • Orange 

  • Red 

General Principles – Red

At Red, action will need to be taken to protect both at-risk people and protect our health system from an unsustainable number of hospitalisations. 

General Principles – Orange

At Orange, there will be increasing community transmission that is putting pressure on our health system. The entire health system will focus its resources, but can continue to manage primary care, public health, and hospitals. There may also be an increasing risk for at-risk people. 

General Principles – Green

Green is when there are some COVID-19 cases in the community and sporadic imported cases. Community transmission will be limited and COVID-19 hospitalisations will be at a manageable level. The health system will be ready to respond, including primary care, public health, and hospitals. 

Sport NZ’s Guidance

In collaboration with the Government’s advice that can be seen via their website (link below), Sport NZ’s guidance should act as the main resource.

Within the Covid Protection Framework community sport may be delivered without the use of a vaccine certificate process as long as all other protocols are followed.

New Zealand Cricket Guidance 

In collaboration with Sport NZ and the six major associations, NZC have developed guidelines to assist the delivery of community cricket safely within each of the three levels. For these documents including guidelines on clubrooms, training and playing please visit –
