Information on the Traffic Light System

On the 3rd of December, Aotearoa moved to the COVID 19 Protection Framework or traffic light system. This will replace the Levels 1-4 that we have become accustomed to since early 2020.

The system will mean greater freedoms for vaccinated whānau and less disruption to businesses, kura and communities.

Below is a chart explaining the traffic light system that may be helpful.
