My business working under New COVID-19 Protection Framework

The COVID-19 Protection Framework introduces a new flexible 3-level approach to managing COVID-19 in the community:

  • Green
  • Orange
  • Red

I am fully vaccinated and have chosen to operate for vaccinated clients in order for my business to operate at all levels. You may wish to visit the Unite COVID-19 website for more details of the framework at https://covid19.govt.nz/alert-levels-and-updates/covid-19-protection/

Under the Green

Clients required to

The therapist is allowed to provide all the list of services offered on the website and clients can request the therapist to wear a facemask. There is no restriction on the number of clients booking appointments.

Under the Orange

Clients required to

  • scan the QR code or sign in the record keeping (which I use the consent form to do so)
  • show their vaccination certificate (https://mycovidrecord.health.nz/)
  • wear facemask but can remove their facemask when lying face down (lying on their chest)

The therapist is allowed to provide all the list of services offered on the website and is required to wear a face mask at all times during the services. There is no restriction on the number of clients booking appointments.

Under the Red

Clients required to

  • scan the QR code or sign in the record keeping (which I use the consent form to do so)
  • show their vaccination certificate (https://mycovidrecord.health.nz/)
  • wear facemask but can remove their facemask when lying face down (lying on their chest)

The therapist is not allowed to provide all the list of services offered on the website and some services will require modification. The therapist is required to wear a face mask at all times during the services. Restriction on the number of clients booking appointments is in place, the therapist is allowed to have 3 booking appointments each day (1 in the morning, 1 in the afternoon and 1 in the evening) with at least 2 hours of interval from the next appointment.
