To help ensure participant safety, we have changed the event format to manage overall attendance numbers. The W1 event on Sat 27 November was a great experience at how we can continue paddling while providing a safe COVID-19 free environment. We are keen to reproduce this for the W6 event.
Hoe Tonga thanks paddlers and clubs for their patience and supporting Hoe Tonga to provide a safe and COVID-19 free event. In order for the event to proceed at the Orange alert level:
- We encourage all attendees to wear face masks.
- COVID contact trace (scan Hoe Tonga QR code)
- Use the NZPassVerifier. All attendees will need to produce MyVaccinePass on arrival to the race venue. More information can be found at: https://covid19.govt.nz/covid-19-vaccines/covid-19-vaccination-certificates/my-vaccine-pass/
Please have a read of the document attached that has more information around the paddler area, whanau supporters expectations and how this event will be run. An updated team waiver form is also now available here
