Key Points

  • Introduction of COVID-19 “traffic light system” under next phase of Covid-19 Protection Framework


The government of New Zealand announced that the country would move to a new traffic light system beginning December 2, 2021. The traffic light system will replace the current alert system for New Zealand and involve three settings: red, green, and orange to determine COVID-19 safety levels in regions of New Zealand. For information on allowable activities under each color, click here.

What are the Changes?

New Zealand will replace its current alert system level with a traffic light system due to high vaccination rates in the country and under the COVID-19 Protective Framework. This change will allow individuals to move more freely throughout the country.
