The Government traffic light system 
How does this apply when visiting Ryman villages? 

 

According to the Government’s traffic light system introduced on 3 December 2021, the regions where Ryman villages are located will be classified into either green, orange or red. This is dependent on the level of community transmission at that time.

We have put together some guidelines on how this system will apply when visiting our villages under the different classifications. This also includes Covid-safe protocols we’ve had in place throughout the pandemic that have helped our villages to remain as safe havens for residents. 

If you haven't already downloaded your My Vaccine Pass click here to go through to the Government website where you will be guided on how to do this.
