Auckland hairdressers to open from Thursday for vaccinated customers

Vaccinated Aucklanders will be able to book in for a long-overdue haircut from Thursday this week. 

Auckland hairdressers to open from Thursday for vaccinated customers

New Zealand will officially move into the traffic light system from 11:59 pm on Thursday, 2 December, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced at a post-Cabinet briefing on Monday afternoon.

Cabinet also agreed to allow Auckland hairdressers and barbers to open from Thursday, 25 November, for vaccinated people.

This would act as a trial for the new vaccination pass, which Ardern has urged Kiwis to download.

Staff of hairdressers and barbers will also have to been vaccinated, and only bookings are allowed, no walk-ins.

Other close-contact businesses, such as hospitality and gyms, will have to wait until the red traffic light on 3 December for an easing of their restrictions.

The Prime Minister says more information will be provided about the traffic light system later this week, as a law change will need to be passed under urgency.

Vaccination rates across DHBs will be a key factor in the decision when moving other regions to the traffic light sytem. “We don’t want people yo-yoing. So starting in green is an unlikely place for people,” said Ardern.

“Regional travel restrictions will not be the norm, hard borders will not be the norm.”
