Health and Safety Plans and Covid Contingencies

AOC is working closely with Orienteering NZ and School Sport New Zealand to be able to host the event in a safe manner that will meet all Covid-19 safety guidelines.  In planning the event we are assuming we will still be in level Red at the time of the event, so the event is planned to go ahead under level Red.  If the alert level reduces to Orange before the event then we may be able to relax some of the restrictions accordingly. We must recognise however the Covid landscape is constantly evolving, making it difficult to say with certainty that the event will proceed.  If for example the Covid situation were to worsen and new restrictions are imposed by the Government or the sanctioning bodies we may no longer be able to run the event.  The safety of competitors, support teams and our volunteers will always be our number one priority.
