- 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.

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.
