I just wanted to let you know about how Vaccine Passports work for me in New Zealand.
As a Hairdresser/stylist (Close contact business) I have to be fully vaccinated to be able to work in Red & Orange in the Covid protection traffic light system. Can’t remember it’s proper name 🙄.
Anyway as I said above this allows me work. These are quite far reaching rules, so I’ll explain as best as I can.
What it means is I can only work with other (other close contact Vendors) who are fully vaccinated and on others (those getting hair done) who are fully vaccinated in Red & Orange. It doesn’t matter where that work takes place, it’s work. For example salon, home, hotel, public or private, I’m working so have to follow the rules for a close contact business.
In fact all close contact businesses have to follow these rules. Or face a fine of $15K…ah no thanks!!
I have no idea what the rules will be for Green. We are of the understanding that we are free to work with anyone no matter what their vaccination status is. But they actually haven’t told us definitely yet. So fingers crossed here.
I hope that explains it enough for you. There is an explanation on the Covid & nz business websites for all to look at.
Please feel free to contact me for a chatter your wedding hair. But outside of these rule I am unable to work with you.
