COVID-19 CORONOAVIRUS – Update: 25 March 2020, 5.15pm
From 11.59pm Wednesday 25 March, New Zealand will move into lockdown to eliminate COVID-19.
All non-essential services must close and everyone should stay at home. These are big measures, but they will save lives.
Every person who doesn’t play their part in helping stop the spread of COVID-19 risks these strict measures being in place longer than the initial four weeks.
Everyone needs to stay home and stop all interactions with others outside of your household, unless you are part of an essential service. Whatever you do must be solitary. You can only spend time with those who you are in self-isolation with, and keep your distance from all others at all times.
Business owners – close your doors unless you are classified as an essential service outlined on the covid19.govt.nz page here.
All the information you need about the national response to COVID-19 is available at www.covid19.govt.nz
You can also follow the regional Wairarapa Facebook page to keep up to date with local COVID-19 developments, including welfare support as that becomes available.
The essential council services which are still operating (e.g provision of drinking water, rubbish and recycling collection) are all listed on our page www.cdc.govt.nz/covid19
If you have any health concerns, please contact your GP via phone in the first instance, or Healthline on 0800 358 5453
Stay well, play your part and, most importantly, be kind. We’re all in this together.
