Alert Level 3 – know what you can and can’t do
As of Tuesday 28 April, we are all noticing the increase in cars, people wanting their favorite takeaways and more businesses opening in a contact-less environment.
However, Alert Level 3 is more about slowly opening the economy again, its not a time to start socializing again. We must still keep our bubble exclusive, maybe just extending that slightly to include someone that is close to you and is maybe vulnerable at this time in needing your support.
There are many warnings from New Zealand’s leaders – we must not be complacent.
We must use some common sense around what we have learnt from Level 4!
