At 11.59pm on Wednesday, Auckland shifts from ‘Alert Level 2.5’ to Alert Level 2. From Thursday, Aucklanders will be able to attend social gatherings of up to 100 people.

The rest of New Zealand is now at Alert Level 1. It remains mandatory for public transport, businesses and workplaces to display QR codes for contact tracing.

We ask that everyone continue with the good hygiene and contact tracing practices that have helped contain the spread of COVID-19 so far. 

If you have cold or flu-like symptoms, please stay home and call Healthline for free on 0800 358 5453 or your doctor for advice about getting tested. Remember, it is free to get tested.

Take care during the school holidays

The school holidays are coming up and everyone can travel, but please be cautious and considerate, particularly if you plan to travel from, to or through Auckland. 

Stay home and don’t travel if you are sick. Instead call your doctor or Healthline for advice on getting tested. Get tested if you are asked to.

We strongly encourage Aucklanders who leave the region to ‘take their Alert Level with them’ by continuing to wear face coverings on public transport and avoid gatherings of more than 100 people.  

Face coverings are required on all inter-regional public transport journeys to, from and through, the Auckland region. This includes flights, inter-regional buses or trains.

Maintain good hygiene by handwashing and sneezing into your elbow, keeping your distance from people you don’t know, and tracking your movements.

Face coverings

People in Auckland should wear face coverings when outside their home during Alert Level 3.

In other areas of the country, wear a face covering if physical distancing is difficult, such as on public transport or in supermarkets.

Face coverings can be re-usable or disposable and they can be bought or homemade. You don’t need a medical mask. You can use another kind of face covering like a scarf, bandana or t-shirt. We have attached a mask pattern for your use!!!

Face coverings help stop droplets spreading when someone speaks, laughs, coughs or sneezes. This will help stop the spread if someone has COVID-19 but feels well or has no obvious symptoms.

Masks must be worn on all flights leaving Auckland. If you do not have your own, the airline will supply one.

NZ COVID Tracer app

We need everyone to record their movements using the NZ COVID Tracer app, or by making a note of where they’ve been and who they’ve seen.

Today we have had a record number of downloads and uses of the NZ COVID Tracer app.

All businesses and venues should display the official government issued QR code poster. From 19 August this will be compulsory.

NZ COVID Tracer app is the fastest way to notify people if they have come in contact with the virus. You can get it on the App Sore or Google Play.
