What does this mean for Workers and Buisnesses?
Engaging with customers
At Alert Level 1, everyone can 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.
As we unite to recover from the effects of COVID-19, it's still important that we keep the basic hygiene measures, including washing your hands and coughing or sneezing into your elbow.
We should all continue to keep track of where we’ve been and who we’ve seen to assist with rapid contact tracing if it is required. Businesses should help customers to keep track of where they’ve been by displaying the NZ COVID Tracer QR code poster
Working from Home and Mental Health
As of 26th of March we have all found ourselves not just with a new way of working, but living. What we will be facing for the unforseeable future may seem daunting and anxiety levels may rise. Remember to be kind to yourselves and allow yourself the flexibility to deal with connectivity issues, system failures and the added pressure of having family distracting you while you attempt to work.
As New Zealanders, our sense of purpose in our work is strong... We’re wanting to remain dedicated to our work. We know that there will be an adjustment period - challenges that you would not have to face if you were in a working environment.
