Alert Level 2 is different with Delta. There are several new requirements:
⏺ Many businesses and locations will be required to take steps to ensure people can easily make a record when they visit.
⏺ A limit of 50 people applies for indoor gatherings, hospitality settings and event venues, 100 people for outdoor settings.
⏺ Keep 2 metres apart from people you do not know in public, and places like retail stores, libraries, gyms and museums
⏺ Face coverings are mandatory for everyone aged 12 and over in indoor public facilities like libraries, museums and shopping malls.
⏺ Face coverings are mandatory for customer-facing staff at hospitality venues and public facilities.
At Alert Level 2 – there’s still work to do. Everyone has a part to play in stopping the spread. This means staying home and calling Healthline on 0800 358 5453 if you have symptoms to get a test.
