COVID-19 and Community Rugby

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the sport we all love. Here you will find all the information players, referees, coaches, clubs, schools and Provincial Unions need to know and what we're doing to keep everyone safe.

New Zealand is currently at the Orange traffic light setting. Rugby can continue but there are some restrictions to keep our communities safe.

Rugby at Orange:

  • community rugby participants do not need to use a My Vaccine Pass
  • there are no limits for indoor or outdoor activities
  • you do not need to wear a face mask outdoors
  • face masks are required in most indoor settings like clubrooms

COVID-19 guidance for Community Rugby

We have developed the following guidance to help everyone understand the COVID-19 Protection Framework requirements, how they apply to rugby and how to return safely following a COVID-19 infection. This advice is reviewed regularly to ensure that it remains consistent with any updates to the COVID-19 Protection Framework and Sport NZ guidelines.
