New guidance about NZ workplace activities

The New Zealand Government has released information on the “golden rules” for businesses at Alert Level 2, but says more information is to come.

Latest Government COVID-19 guidance provides high-level details on what workplace activities are permitted at different alert levels, including:

  • Rules for operating at Alert Levels 3 and 2
  • Guidelines for businesses, including specific types of businesses
  • A question and answer sheet.

The Government says more detailed information for businesses operating at Alert Level 2 is being developed and will be published as soon as it's available.
