COVID-19 Policy and Procedures

Thank you for choosing Tāhuna Beach Holiday Park for your holiday or relaxation time away from work; it is our aim to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

Keeping Everyone Safe

The health and safety of our guests and employees is always our highest priority. We take great pride in maintaining the best standards of cleanliness and hygiene at our Holiday Park and as the COVID-19 landscape continues to evolve, we continue to take measures to ensure ongoing vigilance around personal hygiene and cleaning standards.

Our team is actively monitoring all reputable sources to stay informed and up to date about COVID-19, including the New Zealand Ministry of Health and the World Health Organisation, and in consultation Tourism Industry Aotearoa (TIA) and Holiday Parks NZ.

Our existing cleaning and sanitising procedures have been reviewed to ensure the risk of spreading COVID-19 is mitigated and we have undertaken:

  • Increased employee training and awareness of the requirement to maintain the highest level of health and safety in our workplaces at all times
  • Increased frequency of cleaning the public areas (including Reception’s surfaces, door handles, and bathrooms) using high grade multi-surface disinfectant and cleaner
  • Increased availability of antibacterial hand sanitisers and effective masks for employee and guest use

These measures continue along with regular safety communications, signage and briefings provided through internal communications platforms.

We were recently assessed and approved to carry Qualmark’s COVID Clean Approved logo, reflecting that our business is aware of all COVID-19 requirements as set out by the New Zealand government.

Policy

Under the Protection Framework introduced 2 December 2021 we will be implementing the following:

  • Our accommodation (camping, cabins, studios and motels) is not currently mandated under the framework, and we will be accepting vaccinated and non-vaccinated guests during the 21/22 summer.
    • We believe at this late stage of people’s summer planning, this is the fairest solution, however this is likely to change in the future. As part of our commitment to keeping everyone safe and enjoying their summer, mask wearing, social distancing and all other recommended precautions will be in place and expected to be observed by all of our guests.
  • Our summer events programme will continue to operate however any activities occurring in an enclosed space (ie workshops in the marquee, yoga, etc) will require anyone 12+ to provide proof of vaccination on entry.
  • The Deck Café, which is open to our guests as well as the general public, will require proof of vaccination prior to entry as mandated by the government.
