As of midday tomorrow (Wednesday August 12) the Auckland region (Auckland Council area) will move to Alert Level 3 for 3 days until midnight on Friday 14 August. The rest of New Zealand will move to Alert Level 2.
Specific Messaging for the supply chain sector:
All freight should continue to move as per normal with physical distancing being observed The use of masks and PPE should be as per general instructions (see below)

All public facilities, bars, restaurants and businesses should close. Supermarkets, pharmacies, and petrol stations remain open – shop as normal.

The Ministry of Transport is seeking advice as to whether a short extension to physical distancing requirements for public transport (including ferry operators) can be allowed to enable operators to put this into place with least disruption to those seeking to return home; advice will be provided on this tomorrow.
This situation is fast-moving and further updates will follow.
