Auckland is set to move to COVID-19 Alert Level 2 from 3 at 6 am on Sunday morning while the rest of New Zealand will move to Level 1 from 2 at the same time.

This move is due to having no new community cases for the last five days in a row.

Alert Level settings will be reviewed at the end of next week which in-hopes will put Auckland back to Alert Level 1 by March 13.


Auckland was not moved out of Level 3 earlier due to the nature of a transmission cycle to conclude.

The rest of New Zealand will follow suit moving down alert levels.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Dr Ashley Bloomfield reminded everyone in an afternoon press briefing to keep up social distancing and to keep scanning with the NZ COVID Tracer App; to prevent COVID-19 from spreading.
