COVID-19

The COVID-19 Protection Framework provides flexibility for businesses as New Zealand manages COVID-19 in the community.

The traffic light settings allow businesses to open and operate with flexibility while protecting our hospitals and health system.

The Framework will continue to protect New Zealanders, while also providing more certainty and new opportunities. It minimises the impact through three settings – Green, Orange and Red.
