Alert Level 3 – What does that mean for me?
We are now in Alert Level 3 and it is still quite restrictive. When you are not at work, school, exercising or getting essentials then you should be at home, the same as at Level 4. This will help protect your whānau and stop the spread of COVID-19.
You can add to your bubble to make life easier – but it is important you keep your bubble as small as possible. Choose a whānau member, or caregiver, or a person living on their own to join your bubble.
You can hunt on private land, but not on public conservation land. You need to stay within your region and stick to your bubble. Overnight trips are not allowed. You may only hunt on foot — using quad bikes, off-road bikes, helicopters and other motorised vehicles is not allowed. Fishing from shore is allowed but fishing from boats is still not permitted.
Businesses can start up again – but they must do it in a way that avoids face to face contact with customers, and good safety and hygiene practices must be put in place for kaimahi. Staff can come into work if they can’t do their job from home.
Small gatherings of no more than 10 people are allowed for weddings and tangihanga only.
