From Wednesday December 15 entry to the main Council building on West End will be by Vaccine Pass only, this will apply for all those over 12 and includes the Museum, Library, Council Chambers and Offices, ECAN and the Kaikoura Star Office. In addition to vaccine passes we will continue to require people to wear masks, limit the numbers of people in our buildings and facilities to ensure good physical distancing can be maintained, signing in and regular cleaning to ensure any potential health risks remain low.

The overriding consideration is keeping our people and community safe. Vaccination remains our strongest and most effective tool to protect against infection and disease and we need the staff and the community especially our vulnerable to continue to access facilities safely.

We will continue to provide Council services. If you are concerned about how to access our services from 15 Dec please contact us to discuss the alternative arrangements we have put in place to provide services to those who do not meet these criteria.
