Transport during Alert Level 1
At Alert Level 1, you can travel but try to do it in a safe way.
Public transport operators legally must display QR code posters to help you keep track of where you’ve been. We recommend you use the NZ COVID Tracer app to do this, or another way that works for you.
You're not legally required to wear a face covering unless you're travelling into, out of or through a region at Alert Level 2 or higher. There is still a risk of COVID-19 returning to the community at Alert Level 1. We encourage you to continue using a face covering on public transport.
Stay safe at Alert Level 1
At Alert Level 1, we still need to play it safe. We all need to be ready in case COVID-19 comes back into the community.
To be ready at Alert Level 1:
- maintain good hygiene
- stay home if you’re sick
- get tested if you have cold or flu symptoms
- keep track of where you’ve been and who you’ve seen.
