Topic: Council facilities under Delta Alert Level 2
We're seeking a list of council facilities that will be open in Covid alert level 2 from each of you.
Can you able to please supply this to us this morning? Obviously, if there are facilities that may be restricted to ensure social distancing, can you please advise (I'm thinking Mauao walking tracks for example)?
Can I also please find out specifically what is expected to happen with the Rotorua Night Markets? Obviously, these are popular and although they are outdoors there could be issues regarding the level 2 cap of gathering numbers.
The following information was provided:
Information on Council services and operations in Alert Level 2 has now been updated and is available on our website HERE.
Re the markets - The Rotorua Night Market and the Rotorua Farmers Market are cancelled this week while further assessment is made into the amended alert level requirements. Yesterday the Government announced that Rotorua is moving to Alert Level 2 from 11.59pm tonight (Tuesday 7 September 2021), however there are new guidelines in place. The relevant teams are working with stallholders to ensure all safety requirements can be met prior to running the markets.
