Guidelines for Activity at Level 2

Clubs will need to provide us with a written plan for safe operation.  This should outline the protocols and procedures  in place to ensure you meet all Level 2 guidelines.

To summarise:

  • You must have a system of recording and retaining contact details of all attending (for contact tracing).  
  • Basic hygiene measures must be adhered to including washing and drying hands before and after any activity. 
  • Caution is required with common touch points (e.g. balls or sporting equipment) so these should to be regularly cleaned/sanitised during a session. 
  • In order to meet our responsibilities, the Recreation Centre will be asking to receive a copy of your attendance record after each session for contact tracing purposes.
    • You can use any method you like to record attendance – simple written form is fine, but it must be scanned/copied and submitted to us after each session.
    • You are required to keep this information readily available (as we will also) for 7 weeks.
    • Please outline your method for collecting this information in your written plan. 

We’re keen to support you to get back into your activity so if you have any questions at all please contact Esther. 

If you want to make a booking, email e.rush@massey.ac.nz with your requested date/time/venue.
