The good news is that Alert Level 4 seems to be working, so it's important that we stick to the rules, even over Easter. That means staying home and local, no visiting the bach or breaking your bubbles.
Supermarkets and other essential businesses will be closed on Good Friday, but they will be open on Easter Sunday, so there’s no need to panic buy. If you’re heading to the supermarket to get essential supplies, go with a list so you can shop fast. And remember to keep two metres away from others, and wash your hands when you get home.
