New Zealand To COVID-19 Alert Level 3, 28 April 2020

The Government put New Zealand out of Alert Level 4 lockdown at 11.59pm on Monday 27 April. We will hold at Alert Level 3 for 2 weeks, before Cabinet reviews how we are tracking and makes further decisions on 11 May.

The Government’s decision today allows many businesses to get going again, and for many people to go back to work. Schools will be able to open soon after we move into Alert Level 3.

At Alert Level 3 we will need to be even more vigilant. All of us will need to unite against COVID-19 by sticking to the rules.
