The Willows CC – COVID POLICY 02/12/2021

The Willows Cricket Club COVID Policy

With the current changes to the COVID‐19 pandemic response in New Zealand, The Willows Cricket Club Board
wants to provide for the ongoing health, safety and wellbeing of our members, support staff, contractors,
suppliers and visitors.

From Thursday, 2nd December at 11.59pm, the Covid‐19 Protection Framework (Traffic Light System) will
come into effect.

Based on public health advice, our own health and safety risk assessment and the duty of care we hold for our
members, and the wider community, from 3 December 2021, the Willows Cricket Club will move towards
operating as a fully vaccinated venue.

This means that eventually we will require all members, players, visitors, guests, contractors, suppliers, and
volunteers to provide proof of vaccination (or exemption) to access The Willows ground and facilities. We
believe that this will best protect the health and safety of anyone visiting our facilities and enable us to
continue to deliver on our objectives.

However, it is our intention to do this in a staged manner to allow for a short period of adjustment, particularly
for our visitors from schools.

The staging will be as follows:

From 3 December until 11 December 2021:

  • All players representing The Willows their supporters in attendance and all support staff at the
    ground will be required to be fully vaccinated unless an individual is not eligible for vaccination or is
    validly exempted
  • A vaccine pass or certificate will be required to be provided by players, intended supporters and
    support staff in the week prior to the match.
  • If a vaccine pass or certificate or valid exemption cannot be produced to the satisfaction of The
    Willows Cricket Club, then the individual will be deemed unvaccinated and will be unable to play or
    attend the ground.
  • During this period The Willows will ask visiting teams and supporters to confirm their vaccination
    status.
  • If they are eligible for vaccination, not validly exempted and not fully vaccinated or unable/unwilling
    to confirm their vaccine status, then individuals associated with The Willows will be advised, and they
    will have a choice whether to play and/or provide ground support or not.
  • During this period, masking will be encouraged in the pavilion and social distancing will be
    encouraged so far as possible in cricket.
  • All those coming to the ground will be required to login or sign in with the covid‐19 tracer application.
  • In order to comply with the requirements of the Covid Protection Framework under “orange”, until
    11:59pm on 11 December, numbers at the Willows ground will be limited to 50.

 

From 12 December 2021:

  • In addition to the requirements commencing on 3 December, from 11 December 2022, The Willows
    Cricket Club will only admit to the ground fully vaccinated visiting players, supporters, suppliers, and
    contractors unless an individual is not eligible for vaccination or is validly exempted.
  • A vaccine pass or certificate will be required to be provided by all players and support staff in the
    week prior to the match.
  • Visitors, guests, suppliers, and contractors etc. will be asked to present a vaccine pass or certificate
    once at the ground.
  • Anyone who is unable to provide evidence of being vaccinated will be politely requested to leave the
    ground.
  • Masking will remain encouraged in the pavilion and social distancing will be encouraged so far as
    possible in cricket
  • From 12 December, on the basis that all people at the Willows ground will either be vaccinated in
    accordance with the Covid Protection Framework, not eligible for vaccination or validly exempted, ,
    there will be no limitation on numbers.

This policy will also apply to events run by The Willows at venues other than The Willows ground.

Members who are eligible for the vaccine, not validly exempted but otherwise unvaccinated (or unable or
unwilling to confirm their vaccine status) will continue to be valued members of the club.

The Board of the Willows Cricket Club will review this policy if and when Canterbury transitions to a new traffic
light setting.

The Board has given this policy significant consideration and has not made this decision lightly. However, it
believes that this policy represents the best practicable means of providing for the health, safety, and
wellbeing of its members, visitors, and guests.
