  5. UPDATE TO VACCINE MANDATES IN THE WORKPLACE

The Government has updated the sectors where COVID-19 vaccinations are mandatory for workers.

Government vaccination mandates continue to apply for:

  • Health and disability sector workers (includes aged care workers)
  • Prison staff
  • Border and MIQ workers

Government vaccination mandates are no longer in force for

  • New Zealand Police workers
  • New Zealand Defence Force workers
  • Early childhood and schooling education workers
  • Workers at food and drink services, events, close proximity services and indoor exercise facilities like gyms
  • Work at tertiary education premises

If a business or workplace is not covered by a government vaccination mandate, an employer can determine what controls can be supported by a work health and safety risk assessment or in relation to third party access requirements. This may include requiring work be done only by vaccinated workers.
