Like the rest of the world, Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland is adjusting to life amid the COVID-19 pandemic. 

While Auckland and New Zealand is renowned for its manaakitanga (welcoming spirit), in a bid to ensure our country is as protected as possible from COVID-19, the New Zealand Government implemented an alert level system which specifies the public health and social measures required to fight COVID-19. 

As of 11.59pm, Sunday, 30 August 2020, New Zealand is at Alert Level 2. 

Alert Level 2 means that the disease is contained, but there is a risk of community transmission. You must practice good hygiene and physical distancing, and keep track of where you have been. 

At Alert Level 2 in Auckland, gatherings will continue to be limited. Wearing a face mask is encouraged and is mandatory on public transport. It is recommended that you follow the Ministry of Health’s guidelines, public health measures and consider others around you.
