New Zealand has moved to Covid-19 Level 3 this week.
The new level sees some students move back to school and also our MP’s return to Parliament.
On Tuesday, MPs spaced out around a largely empty debating chamber. Paper towels and disinfectant were spread around the desks, allowing MPs to wipe down their chairs and desks before handing over to a replacement.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, spoke, as did most other party leaders.
Ardern’s speech looked at New Zealand’s response to Covid-19 and praised the collective action of millions of Kiwis.
This week a number of businesses also opened for the first time in 4 weeks. This included cafe’s and food outlets which could offer ‘contact-less’ services.
New Zealand will be in Level 3 until the 11th May, which is when the government will announce New Zealand’s next step.
