Message to Stakeholders:


GasNet Response to COVID-19 at Traffic Light ORANGE and Omicron Response as at 11:59 pm on 13 April 2022


What we require of our business team:

  • GasNet will continue to operate at each Traffic Light setting, however under Traffic Light ORANGE and Omicron Response:
    • we will not admit anyone to any GasNet worksite (or place of work) who does not provide a COVID-19 PASS on request and allow this to be verified (NZ PASS Verifier)
    • we will provide a contactless service for all other persons
    • we will be operating a mixture of on-site and off-site (working from home) personnel arrangements across our business
  • all our personnel are fully vaccinated (most with booster), and we require all our contractors and service providers working on our behalf or alongside us to also be fully vaccinated
  • normal COVID-19 based hygiene etiquette including mask wearing within 2 metres of other persons


What we require of your business team:

  • Confirmation that your business personnel are fully vaccinated or a clear understanding of how your business will maintain separation of vaccinated and unvaccinated personnel to minimise cross-personnel infection transmission
  • Where confirmation is not provided to, or not accepted by GasNet, we will instigate a contactless service regime.  Where this is impractical, GasNet will suspend request for, or contract for, provision of service by your business
  • Normal COVID-19 based hygiene etiquette including mask wearing within 2 metres of GasNet personnel or our contractors and service providers


We, the Team of GasNet, will continue to plan safely, conduct ourselves safely and respond to situations safely as the Team of Five Million moves further in to the Government’s minimise COVID-19 strategy.
