Police are urging our community to play it safe this weekend and stay local as much as possible and adhere to the Alert Level restrictions that are in place.

Auckland currently remains in Alert Level 3 and the rest of New Zealand at Alert Level 2. 

As Aucklanders head in into another weekend, Police will be out in our communities ensuring compliance with the current restrictions as well as continuing to operate the 13 checkpoints in both North and South Tāmaki Makaurau.

The latest compliance figures show us that as of 4 pm yesterday, 105,963 vehicles have been processed through the checkpoints. A total of 5622 have been turned around.

Police are clear about the expectations of those travelling through checkpoints.

People will be turned around if they cannot prove the essential purpose of travel. 

Plan your trip ahead, come prepared with appropriate documentation or an exemption letter, ready to show to checkpoint staff, and expect delays during peak periods. 

More information about exemptions is available on the COVID-19 website (covid19.govt.nz) or, below:
