COVID-19 update

13 Mar 2020

Given the current outbreak and media profile of the COVID-19 virus, the NZLLA Nat Exec felt it important to update members as to how it may impact the NZLLA’s operations and events.

The safety and health of our members is a top priority for us. As part of our duty of care to our members attending in-person events, we are monitoring and following advice from the NZ Government and Ministry of Health.

The Ministry of Health has assessed the current risk level of coronavirus to individuals in New Zealand as low. To date, they have not proposed altering arrangements for public events.

Accordingly, as of today all NZLLA events will be going ahead as planned, unless there is a change in advice from the Ministry of Health. This includes our monthly meetings in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, and Dunedin, and the Privacy Commission lunchtime session later this month (including the video link up sessions in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin). However, we will also provide an individual dial in option for members to attend remotely, and do encourage this where possible. We recognize that individual organizations will have their own policies in place in response to COVID-19, and members will need to be guided by their own organization in participating in NZLLA events.

For the latest Ministry of Health updates, information and advice, please visit the Ministry website

We will continue to monitor the situation. Should there be any updates affecting the NZLLA or its events, we will communicate these to members.

If you have any queries or specific concerns, please feel free to get in touch via

Kind regards
