Auckland will move to Alert Level 1 on tomorrow, October 7 at 11.59pm. What will be different when we enter Alert Level 1?
Controls at the borders remain for those entering New Zealand. This includes health screening and testing for all arrivals, and mandatory 14 day managed isolation or quarantine.
Public Transport in Auckland
Customers will go back to front-door boarding on buses under Alert Level 1. There are no longer physical distancing requirements, so all stickers displaying limited capacity numbers as well as signs that told customers where they could or couldn’t sit will be removed. Please bear with us as it will take a few days for us to remove all of the signage from our buses, trains and ferries.
At Alert Level 1, businesses are able to operate with no restrictions in place. But we still need to stay safe as there remains a risk of COVID-19 returning to the community. Workplaces and businesses legally must still display an NZ COVID Tracer QR code at Alert Level 1.
If you're sick
Staying at home if you’re sick is especially important at Alert Level 1. The risk of COVID-19 being spread in the community is much greater when there are no restrictions on gatherings or going out. Call Healthline for free on 0800 358 5453 if you are not well.
Maintain good hygiene
Keep up good hand washing practices, using soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and drying thoroughly. Cough and sneeze into your elbow. Keep surfaces clean.
Face coverings help keep you and others safe
Continuing good habits with face coverings will keep you and others safe, even at Alert Level 1 when it’s no longer compulsory.
Keep track of where you’ve been and who you've seen
At Alert Level 1, there is still a risk of COVID-19 returning to the community.
Keep your distance
COVID-19 is contained at Alert Level 1, but it’s still worthwhile to keep a safe distance from people you don’t know while out and about. This will help to minimise the spread of COVID-19 if community transmission returns.
