Hawke’s Bay is Red under the Framework

We continue to be guided by our values and caring for each other during COVID-19.  We follow national guidelines, responding to advice from experts and helping share notices and information in our region.

Our offices are open to the public, with no vaccine pass requirement at this stage. All visitors to Hawke’s Bay Regional Council must scan in and wear a mask. Thank you for keeping our people safe.
