Yesterday PM Jacinda Adern announced the Alert Level 1 Rules. Alert Level 1 sees everyone being able to return without restriction to work, school, sports and domestic travel, and you can get together with as many people as you want. Controls at the borders remain for those entering New Zealand, including health screening and testing for all arrivals, and mandatory 14-day managed quarantine or isolation.
Jacinda emphasised that it is still important that we keep the basic hygiene measures that worked so well through higher Alert Levels going. These include washing your hands and coughing or sneezing into your elbow.
The cabinet will decide on Monday 8 June whether and when to move to Alert Level 1.
Until then, Alert Level 2 measures apply.

Alert Level 2 Guidance for Marae
Auckland Council is failing to consider Māori views on dumping at sea
Spokesperson Kelly Klink says iwi and hapū are furious at a decision to strike out their objections to plans to dump more than 3 million of cubic metres of sediment into the sea between Aotea and the Coromandel Peninsula.
A council officer said their submission and more than 100 others did not need to be considered because the consent process was about the dredging from Auckland Harbour, not where it was dumped.
Ms Klink says that\’s not how iwi sees it.
\”Iwi need to be heard in these sort of cases and to understand the Moana binds all iwi together. We all have a part within it, and if you dump in one area, the Moana is going to be affected throughout,\” she says.
