The Covid-19 Protection Framework aka Traffic Light System

Nov 23, 2021

The COVID-19 Protection Framework – The Government has announced the next stage of the COVID-19 response plan to provide a pathway out of lockdown and give vaccinated New Zealanders more freedom. 
For more information see The traffic light system | Unite against COVID-19 (
RNZ has a good explanation in graphics: 

All of New Zealand will move to the traffic light settings at 11:59pm on Thursday 2 December 2021.
Auckland will move into Red.  We are obtaining specific advice from the Ministry of Health and Business NZ for private music teachers working out of their own homes, regarding what is permissible under the “Red” traffic light setting and will update as soon as we obtain this.

Traffic light settings for the rest of New Zealand will be confirmed on 29 November

We encourage all our members to get vaccinated in order to be able to enjoy these freedoms.
