Max People Update - Play it Safe

A couple of words 11th May

A couple of words

Haircuts, malls, bars, restaurants, cafes, and shops? Is it possible?

Once we hit level 2, word on the street is, yes! It won't be back to what we were used to in the 'before days' though. We will all still have to play it safe.

Play it safe?

This means you have more freedom of movement, but it’s up to each one of us to keep the rest of New Zealand safe. These are the most important things that you can do:-

  • COVID-19 is still out there. Play it safe.
  • Keep your distance from other people in public.
  • If you’re sick, stay home. Don’t go to work or school. Don’t socialise.
  • If you have symptoms of cold or flu call your doctor or Healthline and get tested.
  • Wash your hands. Wash your hands. Wash your hands.
  • Sneeze and cough into your elbow, regularly disinfect surfaces.
  • If you have been told to self-isolate, you must do so immediately.
  • Keep a track of where you’ve been and who you’ve seen.

What will we be allowed to do?

Life at Alert Level 2 means we can resume many of our everyday activities – but we have to do so safely.

  • All businesses can open if they can do it safely. This will help to get people back to work.
  • We can go in-store at local businesses.
  • Tertiary education facilities, schools and early learning centres will be open.
  • We can travel between regions.
  • We can safely connect and socialise with close friends and family.
  • We can visit local restaurants, cafes and bars.
  • We can return to our regular recreation activities.
  • We can celebrate life’s important moments with our loved ones such as weddings, funerals, birthdays and anniversaries.
  • Small religious gatherings and ceremonies can be held with public health measures in place. 
When can we do it?

The Prime Minister will make an announcement at 4 pm this afternoon. Until then we remain at Alert level 3. So stay in your bubbles, keep up the good work and wait for Jacinta's update.

The final word

In the words of Winston Churchill

“If you are going through hell, keep going”

Nothing stays on forever. Life is a cyclic process of ups and downs; it is a roller coaster ride. It is natural to be disheartened when bad times dawn upon you and your loved ones but it needs to be understood, that it won’t stay forever. Hold hands, be together and walk through it. And you are never alone in the larger scheme of things.

Roll on Monday! Hopefully, we will receive news on dropping to Alert Level 2 from the Prime Minister. Enjoy the weekend team.
