HRNZ Events COVID-19 Policy


HRNZ is constantly monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation and assessing upcoming HRNZ events, with the aim to protect all members, attendees, presenters and HRNZ employees by making prudent and responsible decisions around health and safety at all HRNZ events.

HRNZ values our members, and our priority is the health and safety of all attendees at HRNZ events, and we want to ensure that you are confident that we have taken all appropriate steps to keep you as safe as possible whilst encouraging you to continue to enjoy our events and professional development opportunities.



All in person PD Courses and Branch Events in person events will be run in accordance with the COVID-19 Protection Framework  (traffic lights).


Conditions of Entry

You should not participate in any gatherings if you have COVID-19 symptoms or if you need to be in isolation for any reason.

We will request that any event registrant who has travelled overseas recently, to confirm that they have complied with any applicable government guidelines on self-isolation.

This is for the health and well-being of all guests, attendees, presenters and staff.


Tracking Attendance

We must be in a position where we have an accurate record of every person who attended an event if requested.

Most attendees are registered through our registration system; however, it is essential that we record all attendees rather than just those who registered.

We will therefore ensure we capture information on all registered attendees; the name and email address of those who attended but hadn’t registered; and record those who were registered but didn’t attend.
