Napier City Council is phasing out its requirements for vaccine passes at its public facilities, beginning from Saturday 26th March.
My Vaccine Passes won’t be required at these facilities from Saturday 26th March:

Napier City Council Chief Executive Dr Steph Rotarangi says the changing environment has made it appropriate to revisit vaccine pass rules for Council facilities.
“Ever since we introduced vaccine pass requirements in some of our facilities in December, we have considered the Government direction, in addition to Hawkes Bay’s Covid-19 situation, taking into account the risks specific to each facility.
“In accordance with the changes announced by Government, we are staging our removal of My Vaccine Pass requirements for facilities.”
“We will continue to review the risks for as long as the pandemic continues. We need to be mindful that new variants may appear in the future, and will respond accordingly to any national direction setting,” says Dr Rotarangi.
