Doing the right thing
At Alert Level 1, businesses are able to operate with no restrictions in place, but it is important to maintain hygiene practices.
If workers are sick or have symptoms of COVID-19, they should stay home.
At Alert Level 1, venues or premises that have visitors and customers should help customers to keep track of where they’ve been by displaying the NZ COVID Tracer QR code poster.
