Marae guidance

Keep whānau and manuhiri at your marae safe and well in the traffic light system

On 3 December, New Zealand moved to the Covid-19 protection framework – the traffic light system.

The traffic lights replace the alert levels. They support a flexible approach to managing Covid-19 in the community.

Since March 2020, marae across Aotearoa have made pandemic plans that set their own tikanga for the circumstances in which they will permit gatherings to ahead. Marae will continue to decide whether to permit gatherings.

If gatherings are permitted, decisions will also need to be made on whether those who are unvaccinated will be able to use marae or attend gatherings. These decisions rest with the leadership of the marae.
