Waikato now at Alert Level 3

October 4, 2021 10:30 am

Please read this important update from RTANZ Chief Operating Officer Simon Carson:

“You may be aware that late yesterday the Prime Minister made a number of COVID-19 related announcements, the most relevant to supply chains being that parts of Waikato have moved to Alert Level 3 from 11:59pm on Sunday evening, October 3. This is because two positive cases have been detected in the Waikato, in Raglan and Hamilton City. 

“The Alert Level boundary currently in place around Auckland will remain as it is and not be relocated; instead of operating checkpoints in and out of the NW Waikato area, Police will instead conduct spot checks in the Waikato area. Permitted travel and testing requirements remain unchanged. 

As always, Ministry of Transport will provide updated guidance for operators as soon as possible – in the meantime, please refer to Unite Against COVID-19. There is also now a Waikato page on the Unite Against COVID website – this will be regularly updated.”
