One of the most important lessons we've learned from overseas is the need to go hard and go early and stamp out flare-ups to avoid the risk of wider outbreak as disruptive it is as it is a strong and rapid health response remains the

Best long-term economic response in line with our precautionary approach we will be asking aucklanders to take swift action with us as of 12

Assess the situation gather information make sure we have widespread contact tracing so we can find out more about how this case arose and make decisions on how to respond to it

Once we have further information let me set out what that means for aucklanders and the rest of new zealand we are asking people in auckland to stay home to stop the spread this means doing the simple

Things that you will already be familiar with to prevent picking up the virus or passing it on to others first act as if you have covered and as if the people around you have covered at level three you're asked to stay at

Home in your bubble other than for essential movements such as going to the supermarket or local recreation if you are in auckland you must work from home unless you are

An essential service worker all schools and child care facilities in auckland are closed as of tomorrow morning except for the children of essential service workers and those who who are involved will

Remember that at level 3 we allow you to access schools and early childhood for a level 3 for essential service workers only all public facilities bars restaurants

And the rest of the country gatherings of course though i'll outline in further detail momentarily traveling into auckland is prohibited unless you normally reside there

And are traveling home if you are currently in auckland but do not normally reside there you also can leave to go home but we are asking you to be very conscious of your

Health and if you begin to display any symptoms please get tested we are defining the area covered as auckland and covered by level three restrictions

Is the geographic boundary of the auckland super city which extends from wellsford in the north to pukakoi in the south police will be issuing further guidance on parameters including roadblock use

First thing in the morning as you will recall all key services supermarkets pharmacies medical centers they do remain open so food and supplies will continue to be readily available

Food delivery is also available as you recall at level three please do not rush to the supermarket tonight you'll recall as when we were in level three on our last occasion supermarkets will be open

There will be ample stock on the shelves there is no reason to go out and make any purchases this evening if you operated as an essential service under level 4 and level 3 last time

Then those are the settings we revert to at level three again if in doubt stay at home tomorrow until you have clarity from your employer
