NZ PM Ardern has outlined a new 'traffic light' system of restrictions; red, orange and green.

In brief:

  • Vaccination passports - to visit bars and visit close business settings, you will need to be vaccinated.
  • Highly targeted and localised lockdowns may be used if needed.
  • first step is with high vaccination rates, target is 90% full vaccinated for each DHB in NZ
  • Auckland will move into the red setting as soon as all three DHBs hit the 90 per cent fully vaccination target,

High hurdle being set in New Zealand at 90%. I'll post more detail on this a little later.
