Note that the use of masks or face coverings is now mandatory for transport services into, around, and out of Auckland, and on passenger flights throughout New Zealand. To check what rules apply and who is exempt, see Masks and face coverings.
For the rest of New Zealand, while it is not mandatory to wear a mask on public transport during Alert Level 1, it is encouraged.
Anyone with cold or flu symptoms anywhere should get a test.
There are 40 active cases of COVID-19 in New Zealand (none in hospital), with a total of 1,657 confirmed cases since Covid-19 appeared and 25 deaths.
We urge members to continue to be vigilant, sign into places using the NZ COVID Tracer app or keep a manual record, and maintain good hygiene practices. If unwell, stay at home and get a test. You must then remain at home until the results of your test.
- All businesses and services (including music teachers with their own studios or those teaching pupils in their own homes) must display a NZ COVID Tracer QR code for their business at all entry points. It must be in either a prominent place or near main entrances. Get your QR poster here. You will also need to have a manual sign in register for those people without smart phones or those who choose not to use the tracer app. This is a mandatory requirement under all alert levels.
