Christmas is just over ten weeks away which means businesses are gearing up for the busy summer months in Hauraki. It’s been tough times for many businesses with disruptions due to COVID-19.
To help reduce the risk of more upheaval, Mayor Toby Adams wants businesses to encourage their staff to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
“We all want to have a great summer here in Hauraki and to welcome back visitors. Keeping our communities and colleagues safe by getting vaccinated is one way we can protect each other and start looking forward to life returning to normal."
"I really encourage you to talk to your colleagues and employees about why it’s important, and schedule a time to go together to get vaccinated. Hauraki businesses want to operate normally and we want visitors here spending money with them, so making sure our communities are safe and healthy is really important".
"Let’s remember this summer for all the good times we had – and not because we had to close up shop due to COVID", he said.
Everyone in New Zealand aged 12 and over is eligible for free vaccination against COVID-19
