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.
Stay home if you’re sick
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 we 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 should all continue to keep track of where we’ve been and who we’ve seen to assist with rapid contact tracing if it is required.
Businesses should help customers to keep track of where they’ve been by displaying the NZ COVID Tracer QR code poster.
