Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has lifted the country’s coronavirus alert status to level 3.

All non-essential services now had to close, she said, and all schools will close. Ardern said these moves would save the lives of tens of thousands of New Zealanders.

In 48 hours the alert level would be raised to level 4 and Ardern said these measures will remain in place for a minimum of four weeks.

Areas could have alert level 4 lifted depending on how Covid-19 is present, but that depended on what happened in the next month.
