Weekly Reminder – 1 March 2022

  • March 1, 2022
1.           Covid Matters
  • Numbers in your venues

A reminder to all clubs to limit the number of people in your venue at any one time to 100.  We have had a few transgressions in the last couple of weeks

  • Two options to apply for support

Covid Support Payments via the iRD

Three fortnightly COVID-19 Support Payments (CSP) will be available with applications opening for the first payment at 8am on 28 February 2022 for the period starting from 16 February 2022

The CSP is a payment to help support viable and ongoing businesses or organisations which have experienced a 40% or more drop in revenue as a result of one or more of the following COVID-19 circumstances:

the widespread presence of COVID-19 in the community in New Zealand  

the public health legislative measures taken in order to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in the New Zealand community

any business circumstances that are, or are reasonably likely to be, a consequence of the circumstances described above.

The COVID-19 circumstances include but are not limited to:

  • businesses not being able to operate to usual levels due to staff having to self-isolate
  • businesses impacted by New Zealand based supply chain disruptions
  • lower retail and recreation movements in a region (for example in a CBD) due to customers working from home or self-isolating.

They do not include circumstances where businesses which are able to operate under the Red setting of the COVID Protection Framework, but have chosen to close temporarily without taking all reasonably practical steps to minimise their revenue losses.

Regional Covid Hardship Fund via Aktive

The Regional Covid Hardship Fund aims to provide financial support to organisations based in the Northland, Auckland and Waikato regions delivering play, active recreation and sport opportunities in the region that are experiencing financial hardship during 2021 as a result of extended time at Alert Levels 3 and 4. It is to help ensure that those organisations are able to continue delivering quality physical activity experiences to get Every Body Active in Aotearoa New Zealand.

This Fund is provided by Sport New Zealand and will be administered in Tāmaki Makaurau by Aktive and our partners CLM Community Sport, Harbour Sport, Sport Auckland and Sport Waitākere. 

The Regional Covid Hardship Fund opens Monday 28 February 2022 and closes Thursday 31 March 2022.


Our treasurer, Raewyn, thinks there will not be many clubs that meets this criteria, but is happy to discuss with them
