COVID 19 Update

In line with New Zealand Government guidelines, from 11.59pm on Sunday 23rd January,  Christchurch has moved to the Red setting in the new Traffic Light protection framework.

Customers and all staff are required to wear a mask in centre, and everyone is to check-in via the NZ Covid Tracer app.

Merivale has remained open throughout the Covid-19 pandemic to provide our community access to essential services such as supermarkets and pharmacies. This does not change in the new Red setting. The centre remains open for all customers to access essential services and general retail stores that are not using My Vaccine Pass settings.

As per Government guidelines, some stores, close contact businesses, restaurants, cafes and areas in the centre will request to sight or scan your My Vaccine Pass for entry. Stores may limit the number of customers in-store at any time for social distancing requirements.

The health and safety of everyone who visits our centre is our main priority and we will continue to follow Government guidelines and Health advice.


Please keep to your bubble and adhere to social distancing of 1m when using comfort seating. In the current setting, no food or drink can be consumed in these areas.


The Merivale Management Team are here to help with any queries you may have. We ask that you please be patient if there are queues.


Thank you for being kind and patient to all of those who work in our centre, we are making necessary changes to how we manage our spaces. These changes are in line with the latest guidelines – we’re doing our bit to help us all play it safe.

We encourage you all to monitor to ensure you receive the latest information and answers to frequently asked questions.
