Congratulations New Zealand - we are now at Alert Level 1. This is recognition of everyone’s efforts to keep each other safe.
Schools and early learning centres continue to be safe to attend. They have a good cleaning routines in place and they are continuing to encourage good hygiene practices. In all cases, children or adults who are sick are asked to stay at home.
Many schools and early learning centres are supporting contact tracing by having QR code posters at entrances – so if you haven’t already downloaded the NZ COVID Tracer app, the Ministry of Health’s NZ-COVID Tracer app page has information to help you do that.
Our children and young people can now look forward to learning with their friends and teachers, inter-school and community sport, cultural events and performances and to welcoming all of our community members on site for these activities.
