coronavirus 16/04/2020

Following Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's 1pm announcement earlier today detailing what Alert Level 3 could look like, the website published a detailed breakdown of each alert level, and what New Zealanders can expect to face as we progress down back to normal life.

The detailed table gives information on public health measures, personal movement, travel and transport, gatherings, public venues, health and disability care services, workplaces, and education.

The website writes:

The Alert Levels are determined by the Government and specify the public health and social measures to be taken in the fight against COVID-19. Further guidance is available on the website.

The measures may be updated based on new scientific knowledge about COVID-19, information about the effectiveness of control measures in New Zealand and overseas, or the application of Alert Levels at different times (e.g. the application may be different depending on if New Zealand is moving down or up Alert Levels).

Different parts of the country may be at different Alert Levels. We can move up and down Alert Levels.

Essential services including supermarkets, health services, emergency services, utilities and goods transport will continue to operate at any level. Employers in those sectors must continue to meet health and safety obligations.

Restrictions at the different Alert Levels are cumulative (e.g. at Alert Level 4, all restrictions at Alert Levels 2 and 3 apply).
