The Greater Wellington Region will move to Alert Level Two from 6pm tonight, Wednesday 23 June 2021, and will be in place until 11.59pm on Sunday 27 June 2021. The rest of New Zealand remains at Alert Level One.
This is not a lockdown – it’s a precautionary move. Businesses can operate and will be open, but they must follow public health rules and protocols. These include physical distancing and record keeping.
We would encourage you to keep supporting local businesses, especially our friends in hospitality and retail.
For businesses operating at Alert Level Two here’s some further information for you to keep operating safely.
Alert Level Two means following public health measures, keeping up good hygiene, and social distancing will apply. Gatherings are limited to 100 people. Continued mask use is required on public transport, and encouraged in public places. If you are sick, stay home and seek medical advice.
