Covid-19 Information – Traffic Light System RED

Update 24 January 2022.

On 3 December 2021, New Zealand adopted the Covid Protection Framework referred to as the Traffic Light System (TLS). Full details of how the traffic light system functions, and the restrictions applied can be found at covid19.govt.nz.

On 24 January 2022, New Zealand moved from the Orange Traffic Light setting to the Red Traffic Light setting.

Uprising is categorised as an indoor recreation facility, and will operate using a vaccine certificate system while the TLS is in place. This means that you will only be able to enter the facility if you have a verifiable My Vaccine pass.

If you’ve had two covid vaccine doses, it’s easy to get a pass, just follow the instructions here: Get a My Vaccine Pass.

If you’re registered at Uprising, you’ll only have to show your pass once.

By follow vaccine pass requirements, Uprising can remain open at both Orange and Red settings. Without following vaccine pass requirements, Uprising would be closed. We fully understand that this decision will negatively impact people within the Uprising community, and wish to assure the community that the decision was made in the best interest of the safety and sustainability of the facility, and our team and the community.
