All New Zealand schools to close

All schools and early childcare centres in New Zealand will close from midnight on Wednesday in the fight to combat COVID-19. 

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern made the announcement on Monday afternoon.

During the announcement, she explained that New Zealand would be moving to COVID-19 alert level 3 for 48 hours, and then to level 4. 
This will see New Zealand move into a lockdown situation for 4 weeks.

Schools and early childcare centres will close from Tuesday, except for the children of essential workers to give them time to prepare. 

Speaking later on Newshub’s breaking news special Hipkins said the Government would help with online learning.

He acknowledged it will be hard for some parents to work from home while their children are at home. 

“I know that is a challenge for some people, we are all in this together.
