With effect from midnight, 12 September 2022 the NZ Government removed the requirement for most people to wear masks. The AJPA position is that, subject to the requirements of the host venue, the wearing of masks at Service Desks will be a personal preference. Similarly with the use of the perspex screens. Hand sanitiser will continue to be available on Service Desks. It is anticipated that Service Desks located within medical facilities (hospitals) will continue to have mandatory mask wearing for clients and Justices. Additional supplies of masks and sanitiser are in plentiful supply and will be provided on request.
