Alert levels

New Zealand's 4-level alert system specifies measures to be taken against COVID-19 at each level.


New Zealand is at Alert Level 1.

Anyone who has cold or flu symptoms should get a test and stay home until you have a negative test result. Find your local testing facility on the Healthpoint website.

The alert system means people can see and plan for the kinds of restrictions that may be required to put in place. This includes increasing or decreasing limits on human contact, travel and business operations.

More information on New Zealand’s COVID-19 alert system, the current alert level, and what the alert levels mean for you, is available on the official COVID-19 website.
