Audio

Alert Level 4. Interaction with others.

Visual

In cartoon form, three black outlined people stand in a row – one using a walking stick, one standing upright and one using a cane.

Audio

The best way to stop the COVID-19 virus from spreading is to keep people away from each other.

Visual

A gap increases between the three people

Audio

The more distance we keep, the less chance the virus has to spread.

Visual

Two double-pointed black arrows appear between the three people, indicating a distance of 2 metres between them. A person joins the row, pushing another person who’s using a wheelchair, and a double-pointed arrow appears between them and the next person in the row.

Audio

For this to work, you need to stay at least 2m away from other people, except for people who live in the same house as you or are an essential support worker. These people are in your bubble, so it's safe to be around them.

Visual

A person lying in a bed. Above the bed is a black line with an arrow on both sides, indicating a distance of 2 metres.

Audio

Remember, 2 metres is about the same distance as a bed.

Visual

Three yellow circles on a white background, connected by dotted yellow lines. In each circle is a person, one holding a phone to their ear, one typing on a smartphone and one sitting in front of a laptop computer.

Audio

If you want to talk to friends and whanau, it's best to call, text or video chat instead of meeting up.

Visual

A person stands behind a fence separating two houses, a yellow speech bubble appearing beside their mouth. On the other side of a fence, a person faces them from beside their house, and a yellow speech bubble appears beside their mouth. A black double-pointed line appears between the two people, indicating 2 metres of distance.

Audio

Chatting to a neighbour is fine, but only if you do it over the fence and make sure you are 2 metres away from them at all times.

Visual

Two people with a child between them. A house appears on each side of the group, and two bubbles encompass the group and split into two, one taking a parent and child to one house, and the other bubble taking the other parent to their house.

Audio

Children can travel between two houses if their parents don't live together but only in the same town or city.

Visual

A person carries a bag of groceries towards a house. In the doorway, a person leans on a walking stick.

Audio

Some people will need help getting food during this time, like grandparents.

Visual

A double-pointed black line appears between the doorway of the house and the person with groceries to indicate a distance of 2 metres.

Audio

You are allowed to drop off groceries to people who need them, but only if you follow the 2 metre rule and keep a safe distance.

Visual

The person places the groceries down and leaves.

Audio

You must not enter the house.

Visual

Beside another house is a van with a shopping trolley logo on the side. Beside the van, a person wearing a shirt with a shopping trolley logo on it stands with bags of groceries.

Audio

The rules are the same if someone is bringing you groceries.

Visual

A person appears in the doorway of the house, below which a black double-pointed line indicates 2 metres of distance between the doorway and the delivery person.

They must keep a 2 metre distance, and they must not enter your house.
