The majority of the government's COVID-related public health requirements such as mask wearing in indoor public settings have been removed following the government's scrapping of the traffic light system.

government COVID response imageMask wearing is only required in healthcare settings such as hospitals, pharmacies, primary care, aged residential and disability-related residential care. People may still be asked to wear a mask in some places but it will be at the discretion of those managing the location, not a government requirement.

For Thames-Coromandel District Council it means there is no requirement to wear masks in any of our public spaces such as Council offices and libraries.

People who test positive for COVID-19 must still isolate for seven days, but household contacts are no longer required to isolate, provided they take a RAT test every day.

All government vaccine mandates end on 26 September 2022.
