We are now in Phase 3 of Omicron Response

With Omicron circulating in our community, the focus is on safely managing COVID-19 at home.

Local healthcare and manaaki is still available for those who need it.

It’s okay to feel anxious or uncertain. Be kind and check on each other.

Together we can protect our whānau and communities.

COVID-19 Traffic Light Setting: ORANGE

The Wellington region is in the ORANGE Traffic Light Setting.

At Orange, there will be community transmission of COVID-19, with increasing risks to vulnerable communities, and pressure on the health system.

How we protect each other at Orange:

  • You must wear a face mask in many indoor locations. You do not need to wear a face mask outdoors.
  • You can visit cafes and bars, attend gatherings and events, and go to the hairdresser and gym. There are no capacity limits or distancing requirements at venues.
  • Workplaces and schools can open.
  • To protect yourself, your whānau and your community, keep up healthy habits.

Get Prepared

The Wellington region is an awesome place to live, but it’s a little wild. We often experience earthquakes, storms, flooding and landslides. We’re also at risk from tsunamis.

These emergencies have similar impacts.  It would be hard to get around, hard to communicate with loved ones and hard to get access to the essentials.

We’ve outlined the things you can do to prepare your household and community get through the challenging days safely, and as comfortably as possible.
