COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

Ngā manaakitanga ki a koutou katoa i runga i ngā āhuatanga o te wā.

Kia ora e te whānau. As we all know, Pōneke is currently sitting in Delta Alert Level 2. Government has recently announced that Aotearoa will move to the new “traffic light” system at 11.59pm on December 2.

The new COVID-19 Protection Framework, or the traffic light system, aims to manage COVID-19 in the community. As per Government guidelines, it is optional for businesses to require vaccination certificates. Taki Rua has decided that for the safety and greater freedom for those who use and visit our building, Te Haukāinga will be a vaccination certificate required location.


To prepare for the new framework, we ask that all Taki Rua kaimahi and occupants of the building, as well as any visitors, read and follow these provisions to keep our whare safe.

My Vaccine Pass

My Vaccine Pass is an official record of your COVID-19 vaccination status for use within Aotearoa. Once the traffic light system is in place, we will require visitors and hirers of Te Haukāinga to show this pass as your proof of vaccination. Learn about and request your Vaccine Pass through My Covid Record.

Alert Level 2 Protocols for Te Haukāinga 

While we are still in Alert Level 2 in Te Whanganui-a-Tara, we continue to ask that the following protocols be followed.

•Wear a face covering

•Keep up Contact Tracing

•Maintain good hygiene

•Stay home if you are māuiui

•Get tested and vaccinate

The World In Faces

Our free exhibition The World In Faces by Alexander Khimushin, which opens November 27, will require proof of vaccination to enter. We are also asking visitors to remain masked and socially distanced while visiting our exhibition.

Te Reo Māori Season - Pourakahua

Taki Rua’s priority is keeping our communities and crew safe during the 2022 Pourakahua tour. We want to let kura and schools know that our touring team will be fully vaccinated, masked when packing in and out, and keeping a safe distance from tamariki and audiences.

Nō reira e hika mā, kia mataara, kia manawanui.

Be alert, but be kind.

Nā mātou iti noa nei,


Te whān­au o Taki Rua.
