Covid-19 Information: 

As always, health, safety and wellbeing is the highest priority at these events for NZ Arb. The NZ Arb Tree Climbing Competition (TCC) committee have implemented plans to help minimise the risk for those in attendance, however it is reminded that all individuals are responsible for their own personal hygiene and decision to attend. 


The COVID-19 Protection Framework has replaced the Alert Level system and we are following NZ Government Guidelines based on Gatherings at Orange. This means the event is a My Vaccine Pass only event and you will be required to show your Vaccine Pass upon arrival. 


The traffic light system current at the time of the competition and any additional guidelines from the NZ Government and the Ministry of Health will provide the basis for event planning going forward, including any recommended travel restrictions between regions.
