Alert Level Update
Wellington region is still at Alert Level 2 until 11:59pm on Sunday 27 June
Whānau living in Pōneke and recent manuhiri are urged to check the recently updated locations of interest page on our website and follow the health advice.
If you have been at any of these locations at the specified time you should immediately stay at home or at your place of accommodation, contact Healthline (0800 358 5453) for advice on testing, and monitor yourself for symptoms. You can find your local testing facility on the Healthpoint website.
At Alert Level 2, whānau can go to mahi and kura, but should follow public health measures and be considerate of others.
If you’re māuiui, stay at home; don’t go to mahi or kura or out to socialise. If you have symptoms of a cold or flu, or aches and pains, call your health provider or Healthline and ask about getting tested.
When you’re not at home, make sure to keep your distance from those around you. Stay 2 metres away from others in public and 1 metre in controlled environments, like at mahi.
Whānau must wear a face mask or covering on public transport and on domestic flights, and
- when waiting for public transport,
- in taxis and rideshare services such as Uber and Ola,
- in any situation where physical distancing is not possible.
Gatherings and hui of up to 100 people are allowed, however there are specific restrictions at Alert Level 2 depending on the type of gathering. You can learn more here.
Please keep track of where you’ve been by using the COVID Tracer App or by maintaining your own accurate diary.
Lastly, while travel is not restricted under Alert Level 2, please remember to take Alert Level restrictions with you if you’ve been in the Pōneke region. For example, if you were in Pōneke over the weekend and are now in Tāmaki, please don’t attend large gatherings.
