Hawke's Bay Police are pleased with the public's response to complying with Covid-19 Alert Level 4 settings.

So far there's been 2,248 pandemic-related activities across the area have been undertaken, with 1,076 reassurance patrols and 497 being at essential businesses such as supermarkets.

Out of that, 294 checks have been made on businesses that can not operate under the settings.

On Wednesday, 264 pandemic-related activities were carried out with 88 additional reassurance patrols and 80 visits to essential businesses.

Area Commander Inspector Lincoln Sycamore says everyone in the region is sticking to the rules. Those breaching have typically been educated on the current regime.

“Police has issued six warnings to date and have made only one arrest overnight for disorderly behaviour,” he said.

“It is pleasing to see so many Hawke's Bay people staying home in their bubble and only heading out when they absolutely need to, and I am really proud of our community making a real effort to stick to the rules about being out and about – keep up the good work Eastern District.’
