Jacinda Ardern, Prime Minster, announced that Auckland and Northland probably will remain at Alert Level 4 for two more weeks. This is yet to be confirmed. This will be discussed with Cabinet on Monday to confirm what to do.

Northland and Auckland are both together at Alert Level 4 because there has been a positive case at a Warkworth Rest Home. It is best to on the safe side for both Northland and Auckland to be at Alert Level 4.

This means Waikato and rest of New Zealand will drop-down to Alert Level 3 from midnight Tuesday.

The Police will be setting up roadblocks to check for essential travel from Auckland to Waikato. You will require a permit to show proof of essential travel to be able to travel between Auckland and Waikato.

Cases have been increasing, but now we are seeing a plateau. This is positive news. We hope to see cases decrease soon.

If you are not sure of the rules at Alert Level 3 or Alert Level 4, you can visit the Deaf Aotearoa website and click on the COVID-19 tab, and there will be Alert Level 3 and Alert Level 4 information.

If you are stuck and need support, Deaf Aotearoa staff will be happy help you.
