  • before eating or handling food
  • after using the toilet

What Alert Level is New Zealand at, and what does this mean?

New Zealand has a four-level COVID-19 alert system, that specifies public health and social measures to be taken against COVID-19.

New Zealand is currently at Alert Level 2: Reduce. Level 2 means that COVID-19 is contained, but risk of community transmission is growing because we have more cases. This is when we are focused on slowing down the spread by reducing our contact with one another. We also increase our border measures and we cancel events. We ask people to work differently if they can and to cancel unnecessary travel.

Find out about the Alert Levels and what this means on the covid19.govt.nz website: https://covid19.govt.nz/government-actions/covid-19-alert-system/
