At Alert Level 1, everyone can return to work, school, sports and domestic travel, and you can get together with as many people as you want.
At Alert Level 1 we all need to be ready in case COVID-19 reappears in our community.
Controls at the borders remain for those entering New Zealand. This includes health screening and testing for all arrivals, and mandatory 14 day managed isolation or quarantine.
If you’re unwell
Staying at home if you’re sick is still the best thing you can do to stop any future spread of COVID-19.
Practise good hygiene
It’s still important that you use basic hygiene measures, including washing your hands, coughing or sneezing into your elbow and cleaning surfaces.
Keep track of where you’ve been
We recommend you keep track of where you’ve been and who you’ve seen to assist with rapid contact tracing if it is required.
Businesses legally must display the NZ COVID Tracer QR code poster to help customers to keep track of where they’ve been.
If you’re having trouble with money, there may be support for you.
