Operating at the JRFC under the Covid-19 Protection Framework

From 3 December 2021 we transition into the Covid-19 Protection Framework. The Wellington region will go into the 'ORANGE' light settings.

What does this mean for us and those operating out of the club?

We will be taking all reasonable and practical steps as much as possible to ensure we operate appropriately and ensure the club remains a safe place for our members and those visiting.

We intend to operate with vaccine passes as much as possible which will allow greater flexibility at the club in terms of use of functions and gatherings. We will be taking the approach of sighting vaccine passes (VP's) rather than ensuring compliance with the verifier app which may be quite cumbersome. So in summary:

  • Please continue to scan in using your Covid-19 Tracer App

  • Continue to use a face covering where you feel appropriate

  • Stay home if you are unwell

  • Organised training sessions (inside and outside) - where managers / coordinators can coordinate sighting VP's then no restrictions on size of training sessions. If not, these should be limited to 50 people with sufficient distancing where appropriate

  • Touch rugby (outside) - as above. There will only ever be two matches of touch rugby taking place at any one time (approx 40-50 people max)

  • Organised gym sessions (in greenroom) - e.g. Boxfit, etc. A coordinator needs to ensure VP's are sighted on arrival

  • Use of clubrooms - where organisers can coordinate sighting of VP's there are no restrictions, otherwise a limit of 50 people with sufficient social distancing

  • Use of clubrooms (with an organised function) - we will be ensuring VP's are sighted by organisers or security upon arrival to allow us to maximise numbers and space.

Please find a link below to more details on how sport and recreation will operate under each settings of which we will be ensuring we follow as much as possible:


Please exercise patience and compassion as we work through transitioning into this new phase of living with Covid-19. If you have any questions or feedback, please do not hesitate to contact us at enquiries@jrfc.co.nz.
