Health Minister Chris Hipkins urges Aucklanders to wear face masks

Stacey Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Health Minister Chris Hipkins is telling Aucklanders to wear a face mask as the city heads into an alert level 3 lockdown today.

“My advice to everyone watching this is: ‘Wear one’,” Hipkins told Stuff.

He said the Government was still working on legal issues around making masks compulsory.


A legal order under the new Covid-19 legislation would be issued on Wednesday. This would give legal effect to the alert levels in Auckland and the rest of the country.
