The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to seriously affect New Zealand and the world. To combat the outbreak, the government has taken a series of measures to halt the spread of the virus. From 11:59 pm on Wednesday 25 March 2020, New Zealand moved to Alert Level 4. This means that, at the time of writing, New Zealand is under a strict lockdown where everyone must stay at home unless they are working in an “essential business”.
