IoD Covid-19 safety plan - updates

The information on this page was updated  14 April 2022.

Courses and events at ORANGE

In line with the Government's changes to the traffic light system, we've made changes to our course and event policies. Effective immediately, attendees will no longer require a vaccine pass or to scan in using the QR code to attend an IoD course or event.

Whilst not mandatory, face masks are encouraged at our events and courses. 

We will monitor updates from the NZ government as the situation develops and communicate with you directly if your attendance at a course or event is affected.

If you test positive or are notified you are a close contact while at a course, the IoD will not be responsible for accommodation or meal costs beyond the last day of the course if you are required to isolate away from home.

If you register for in-person IoD courses and events you also agree to adhere to our safety measures in place to mitigate the risk of spreading Covid-19. These measures are based on NZ Government guidance around good hygiene practices and contact tracing.

If you are unwell, have any Covid-19 symptoms, or are awaiting a Covid-19 test result, please do not attend the course or event. Contact your course or branch manager to discuss your options.

In some instances it may be necessary for the IoD to cancel courses and events because of Covid-19. Where this happens, we will contact you prior to the course or event and your options will be discussed.

We will update this page as new Government information is made available including further changes to the traffic light system, or alert levels. 

For more information see NZ Government updates and guidance.

Other safety measures

The IoD has mandatory protocols in place for all in-person events and courses to ensure health and safety measures adhere to NZ Government guidelines. Failure to adhere to these safety measures may result in cancellation of your attendance and forfeiture of your fee.

  • We will maintain attendance lists for contract tracing & record keeping purposes 
  • Hand sanitiser will be available and we encourage good hygiene practices at all times.
  • If you are unwell, have any Covid-19 symptoms, are isolating as a positive case or are a household member of a positive case, or are awaiting test results please do not attend the course or event. 

For our cancellation policy, please see our course and event terms and conditions.
