From 11.59pm tonight, 13 April all of New Zealand will move to Orange 🟠

Over the past few weeks we’ve seen a sustained reduction in cases and hospitalisations despite the relaxation of settings. Under the COVID-19 Protection Framework, this means we can now move to the Orange setting.

At Orange 🟠

➡️ There are no indoor or outdoor capacity limits at events.

➡️ Face masks are still required for many indoor settings. Inside schools, face masks are not required but still encouraged.

➡️ There are no changes to the 7-day self-isolation requirement, if you, or someone you live with gets COVID-19.

➡️ Bars and restaurants are no longer required to enforce seated and separated rules, although they can choose to keep them.

Wearing a face mask at Orange is still important, especially with capacity limits removed. Next to being vaccinated and having a booster, face masks are the best defence against COVID-19 and reduce new cases by as much as 53%.

Traffic light settings will be reviewed in mid-May.
