Visiting us under the Covid-19 Protection Framework

Covid Protection Framework/Traffic Light System at The Orchard Business & Events Hub

Te Tai Tokerau will move to the new Covid-19 Protection Framework with the rest of Aotearoa on the 3rd December 2021. At The Orchard Business & Event Hub, we are taking steps to ensure that everyone who works in, and visits our co-working and event space is safe from Covid-19.

Anyone using or visiting our space from the 3rd December 2021 will be required to show their “My Vaccine Pass” to reception on arrival. This includes Northland Inc and The Orchard staff, co-workers, visitors, suppliers, people hiring the space and/or attending events.

You can get your My Vaccine Pass from: My Covid Record | Ministry of Health NZ

Please remember, these are central government regulations – we are following the rules so we can keep operating and continue providing coworking, meeting and event space to our Te Tai Tokerau community.

We're committed to supporting our whole business community and we have multiple online and video conference options for meeting with anyone who can't be here in person. Please don't hesitate to contact us to talk about an option that is right for your meeting or event.
