Covid-19 Update

Auckland will stay at Alert Level 3 and the rest of the country at Alert Level 2 for 12 more days, until 11.59pm August 26.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR US?

EXERCISE AT ALERT LEVEL 3

Exercise and recreation is an important part of maintaining our health and wellbeing. However, there's a very high risk of transmission if we come into contact with others, touch common equipment or surfaces, or need rescuing or medical care.

You can do activities that are local and safe. Only exercise alone or with the people in your extended bubble. You need to keep a 2 metre distance from people who aren’t in your bubble, and you are strongly encouraged to wear a face covering.

The most important thing is to stay safe. Do low-risk activities, so you don’t need rescuing or medical care. Now isn't the time to take up new activities, or expose yourself or your bubble to any risk. Use your common sense — stay local, stay safe.

If you’re experienced you can do more activities. These include:

  • surfing — if you're an experienced surfer, you can go to your local break. If you’re not experienced, don’t surf

  • tramping — is okay for day walks on easy trails. Remember to keep your distance from other people

  • mountain biking — if you're experienced and know the trail

  • swimming — in safe local spots. Don’t take risks that might mean rescue services have to break their bubble to help you

  • horse riding — if you're an experienced rider and it's low risk. Stay as close to home as you can.

Stay within 200 metres from shore if you are kayaking, canoeing, rowing, surfing, wind surfing or paddle boarding.

Boating, jet-skiing, yachting and scuba diving isn't allowed.

Team sports and training is also prohibited.

WHERE YOU CAN EXERCISE

Stick to your local area. For example, go to your nearest beach or park, not your favourite one. Staying overnight at a bach or holiday home isn't permitted.

If you're exercising outside and it's too busy to keep a 2 metre distance from others, go home — go out later.

You should drive as short a distance as you can and still do the activity.
