Auckland moved into level 3 at midday on Wednesday, and the rest of the country into level 2.
Kiwis outside of Auckland can still continue to go to work and school, with physical distancing, and are advised to wear masks in public.
Businesses can open to the public if they are following public health guidance, which includes physical distancing and record keeping.
In terms of gatherings, New Zealanders must not travel to events with more than 100 people. This includes weddings, birthdays, funerals and tangihanga.

A growing number of Christchurch households have lost their right to recycle as the city council takes a hard line on people who refuse to separate their waste.
Twenty-six yellow bins have been confiscated by the Christchurch City Council and another 52 will be removed from city streets over the next two weeks.
The residents have been warned three times but continue to put contaminated waste in their recycling bins.
To get the bins back, they will have to pay $97.65 and sign a statement promising to abide by the rules. Their bins will be monitored to make sure they keep that promise.
Hey Stuff what sort of Stuff is this. A very nice Monocular advertised by Genius Ever on your site states 50% of from $139,90 to $69.90 for today only, But hang on it was advertised yesterday at the same price. Go to the web site and the counter starts counting down from 20 minutes to zero telling you you only have this time to make a purchase. go off site and return the counter starts again. This sort of advertising is utter rubbish trying to pressure people into compulsive buying. Very surprised STUFF wood even consider running this sort of rubbish.
