COVID-19 Response

NANZ Were Open

As you will be aware, the situation with the COVID-19 virus is rapidly evolving.

As always, the safety and wellbeing of our customers, team members and communities is our top priority.  The National Aquarium of New Zealand and Napier City Council is continuing to monitor the situation closely and respond to the advice from the Ministry of Health. We encourage all our visitors to do the same.

Based on this advice we are still open for our community. We want to assure you that we’re taking the necessary precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 including increasing the frequency of cleaning, and encouraging social distancing. That said, if you are feeling unwell, please hold off your visit until your symptoms clear. We would love to see you, but we must ensure the safety of our community and staff.

We’re dedicated to protecting against coronavirus, while remaining a place that our community can feel safe and welcome.

Steps we are taking include:
•    Implementing regular front desk cleaning procedures, including surfaces, EFTPOS terminals and other areas that are frequently touched.
•    Additional cleaning of benches and tables.
•    Increased cleaning of restrooms and floors.

We are also working on innovative ways to connect with you if you’re unable to visit.

We will be responding to any new information as required so please check our social media and website for updates.

We are all in this together so please take care, be kind and watch out for each other.

Kia kaha, kia māia, kia manawanui.
