COVID-19: Building and construction sector guidance

The Government has announced the next stage of the COVID-19 response plan which moves towards enabling people, businesses, whānau and communities to manage the risk of COVID in an environment where, as a community, there are high rates of vaccination.

The Framework allows for some regions to step down the colour settings ahead of others if appropriate.
