Auckland is a level 3 lockdown due to the re-emergence of Covid-19 in the community. I understand that the last day's events will be frustrating and upsetting, but I know that we can pull together as a community as we have during the previous two lockdowns.
I'll be isolating at home with my family and keeping within the Ministry of Health guidelines, and I encourage you all to do the same.
If you need assistance, send us an email at [email protected], and we'll try to get back to you as soon as we can.
What can I do under level 3?
Under a level 3 lockdown, stay home if you can to avoid any risk of spread. You must work from home unless you're not able to. Children should learn at home if possible. You can still go to the supermarket if you need food, and essential services like pharmacies are still operating with plenty of stock, so there's no need to worry about getting what you need.
At Alert Level 3, you legally must stay within your household bubble whenever you're not at work or school. However, you are allowed to bring in caregivers and support isolated people as long as you do so safely.
You're strongly encouraged to wear a face-covering when you're outside your home and in a place where it's hard to stay 2 metres away from other people, like in shops. You legally must wear a face covering on public transport.
Travelling outside Auckland is prohibited unless you have proof of essential travel.
If you feel sick
If you feel unwell, particularly if you have any of the symptoms of Covid-19 such as a dry cough or fever, contact Healthline or your GP immediately to organise getting a test. Testing is available all over Auckland, and Healthline will advise you of the closest testing facility. Tests are free of charge.

Because of COVID-19, financial pressure will be a reality for many. If you're under financial strain due to the lockdown, there is support available for businesses and individuals. I encourage you to follow the link below to check your eligibility.
Looking after loved ones
It's essential to reach out a lookout for vulnerable people, particularly those who are isolated or susceptible to COVID-19. If you know someone alone or in need of assistance, give them a call to check in on them. There are services such as delivery shopping for those unable to shop, and support services available to those isolated physically.
