Wellington Orienteering Club

COVID-19 Alert Level 2

Event procedures for Delta Level 2

Orienteering Wellington will take reasonable precautions to reduce the risk to orienteers, officials and volunteers to reduce the chance of transmitting Covid-19 and encourage physical distancing. 

We need you to:

  • register online and in advance—we won't be offering entry on the day  
  • scan in using the NZ Covid Tracer app
  • start promptly and leave promptly after you've finished
  • bring a mask for use around the event centre, while waiting to start or when collecting a hired SI card
  • bring your own water
  • bring your own hand sanitiser (if you can)
  • follow good hygiene practices
  • keep your map after the event
  • make electronic payments. Our bank account number—03-0525-0416981-000—will be printed on all maps
  • observe physical distancing and mask use in busy areas. Physical distancing means 2m separation in the event centre, at the start area, and any other controlled environments. Out of courtesy of others, please respect physical distancing requirements while on your course
  • not come to the event if you have any cold or flu symptoms, or if you or anyone from your household is awaiting Covid-19 test results.

Orienteering Wellington will: 

  • remove bottlenecks or areas where people may congregate
  • use start waves, to ensure we don't go over the 100-person limit, the start window will be split

  • provide hand washing or sanitising facilities at key locations including toilets and finish areas
  • make sure that touchscreen devices (e.g., registration tablet) are only used by nominated event personnel 
  • refund people who withdraw for health reasons
  • collect contact information so that people can be traced should someone who tests positive for Covid-19 come into contact with others. This will include your full name, contact details (email, phone number, address), and arrival and departure time
  • provide the NZ Covid Tracer QR code
  • reduce the opportunity for people to congregate at events 
  • provide protective equipment, disinfectant and briefing to event volunteers, and ensuring hard surfaces such as tables are regularly wiped clean
  • require registration and payment online rather than clip cards or cash
  • arrange starts and finishes to provide for physical distancing.
