Life at Orange

We are at the Orange setting in our traffic light system. There will be community transmission of COVID-19, with increasing risks to vulnerable communities, and pressure on the health system.
 Please note there is no change to our current requirement for mask wearing within healthcare settings.
To protect yourself, your whānau and your community, keep up healthy habits, especially hand hygiene.
