Alert Level 4 - Prepare, Prevent, Protect.

New Zealand needs your support to eliminate COVID-19 and the Delta variant.

Everyone must now stay home in their bubble.

You can only leave home for essential personal movement, like to:

  • shop for groceries
    access necessary healthcare
  • get a COVID-19 test or vaccination
    exercise in your local area
  • go to work if you are an Alert Level 4 worker and you cannot work from home.

Only make physical contact with those in your household bubble.

If you live alone, you may arrange with another person living alone or a household to be part of your household bubble. This arrangement must be exclusive between you and the other household.

At Alert Level 4 you can still access all the essentials you need, including medicine and food.

Covid-19 is an illness that can affect your lungs and breathing by a type of Coronavirus. 

There are some simple steps you can take to protect you and your family and fight the spread of the Coronavirus.
