Life at Red

At Red, we need to take action to protect our vulnerable communities and our health system from COVID-19. Learn what we all need to do.

Key points

All New Zealand is at Orange. If we move to Red:

  • Red is not a lockdown, but restrictions will slow the spread of COVID-19.
  • You can always access basic needs, such as food and healthcare.
  • You can travel anywhere in New Zealand, and visit friends and whānau.
  • You must wear a face mask in most indoor locations. You do not need to wear a face mask outdoors.
  • You can go to cafes and bars, attend gatherings and events, and go to gyms and hairdressers. Some venues have capacity limits and distancing requirements.
  • Workplaces and schools can open.
  • Keep physically distanced wherever possible.
