COVID Framework for State Cinemas Screenings @ The Suter


COVID-19 Framework Press Release:

06 April 2022

Kia Ora Nelson, 

 

In line with the recent updates to the current Covid Protection Framework – we are delighted to be able to once more open our doors to the entirety of the Nelson Tasman Community.

As of 11:49pm on the 4th of April 2022, Vaccine Passes will no longer be necessary for entry into State Cinemas.

State Cinemas does reserve the right to monitor and alter this at any time to ensure the safety of our staff and community. Due to the current Omicron variant of the COVID-19 outbreak, we will continue to monitor the safety of our premises and adjust any operations as the need arises. This may include the reinstitution of Vaccine Passes – however, this will not be utilised unless there is legitimate cause and need to do so. 

We will continue, however, to uphold the protection guidelines as provided by the New Zealand Government. Updates to the Covid Protection Framework, or “Traffic Light System” are below.

 

Red Setting:

  • There are no limits for outdoor activities, such as gatherings and events, and food and drink businesses. My Vaccine Passes must be used until 11:59pm on 4 April.
  • There is a 200-person limit for indoor gatherings and events — My Vaccine Passes must be used until 11:59pm on 4 April.
  • If My Vaccine Passes are not used, the gathering limits remain unchanged.
  • You do not need to wear a face mask outdoors.
  • Other face mask rules remain unchanged — face masks are still required in most indoor settings.
  • There is no requirement to scan in or for a business to display a QR code poster or have mandatory record keeping.

 

Orange Setting:

  • There is no limit for outdoor gatherings.
  • There is no limit for indoor gatherings.
  • You do not need to wear a face mask outdoors.
  • Other face mask rules remain unchanged.
  • There is no requirement to scan in or for a business to display a QR code poster or have mandatory record keeping.

 

Green Setting:

  • There are no restrictions.
  • We encourage you to keep up good health behaviours.
  • There is no requirement to scan in or for a business to display a QR code poster or have mandatory record keeping.

 

My Vaccine Pass:

From 11:59pm on 4 April 2022, there is no requirement to use My Vaccine Pass. Until 4 April, where My Vaccine Passes are not used, the current restrictions remain — but after this time, the new capacity limits will apply to everyone. After 4 April, businesses will still be able to use the system if they would like to.

 

Refunds will continue to be considered for customers who cannot attend a session due to having to isolate with COVID-19 – please see our PRICING AND POLICY page for more information.

We look forward to welcoming the entirety of our community back to State Cinemas – and wish to thank you all for your support and understanding during this time.

Nga mihi nui,

 

The State Cinemas Team
