UPDATE COVID LEVEL 4 - 18 August 2021 - 
Training of Racehorses
Movement to and from stables for general husbandry of horses is permissible, but Trainers and training venues must:
seek to minimise the numbers of staff on roster;
require the use of Government COVID Tracing QR Codes;
require or encourage the wearing of masks;
require social distancing where possible; and
encourage frequent use of soap or hand sanitisers.
Horses can be worked for animal welfare purposes if the Trainer considers that it is necessary for the horse’s wellbeing.
NZTR will update within the next 24 hours in accordance with Government updates and guidelines as these are released.
The race meetings at Cambridge on 18 August and at Oamaru on Friday 20 August are both abandoned.
NZTR will be conducting meetings with stakeholder groups and affected clubs, and will update participants tomorrow for upcoming meetings, including possible arrangements for rescheduling of the Cambridge JC and Oamaru JC meetings.
More updates posted as they come to hand.
