COVID-19

Hastings District Council is committed to ensuring we continue to deliver our essential services should the community and our council staff be widely affected by the COVID-19 virus.

We are constantly planning and following Ministry of Health advice regarding community and staff health and this includes the potential to reduce services or close non-essential community facilities.

We will let the community know immediately of any changes to services or facility operations in relation to COVID-19.

Council encourages the community to follow the advice, guidance and direction of the Ministry of Health and the Government in their role as the lead agencies.

Community updates

Council facilities

At alert level 1, Council services and facilities will be resuming close to normal service however some facilities will continue to have reduced opening hours and booking requirements may still apply.

At alert level 1, the following requirements cease:

  • Physical distancing restrictions will no longer be required.
  • There are no gathering limits (either inside or outside).  
  • Contact tracing is no longer required.
