What moving to level 2 means for the rest of NZ

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

On Tuesday night, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced there were four new Covid-19 cases in the community.

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.

The Government advises all Kiwis to practise good hygiene and stay home if sick.

For more information on what the different alert levels mean for you, click here.

Call Out to other Local Charities

Riverside Milk

A Call Out to charitable organisations who are in need of a space to offer a workshop, class or gathering.

Riverside Community charitable Trust is blessed to own a fabulous hire venue with several different spaces and we would like to make it available at NO to VERY LOW cost to eligible NOT-FOR-PROFIT groups and events offering education or supporting people in need.

It's been a rough year for many charities, in particular those relying on donations or face-to-face contact and it's time to gather and share resources where possible.

Be it Te Reo Maori lessons, mentoring local children, or holding a Hui to organise a local Climate Forum, there are plenty of different scenarios where we may be able to help your charity out.

If we can take some financial worries off your shoulders and therefore support you in offering something precious to the wider public which may otherwise not happen, please talk to us at centre@riverside.org.nz
