Library Restrictions Inequitable

Marie from Waikanae

I was surprised to be asked for my vaccine pass at the local library this weekend. I would have thought public libraries were exempt, along with supermarkets pharmacies etc. They are public spaces afterall, which ratepayers, vaccinated or not, contribute to.
While I appreciate the wishes of Council to keep staff safe, in reality the risk posed by a library visit is low. With over 92% vaccinated in the region, measures such as a limit on numbers, masks, screens and distancing will serve to reduce risk. Im curious what the rationale was for this decision. (Though no doubt if I ask, it will be treated as an OIR request and I'll have to wait until next year for a response). It seems like a step too far to me. What do others think?
