At Alert Level 4, people must stay home other than for essential reasons.
If people do need to leave home, Ministry of Health guidelines encourage people to wear a face covering and keep 2m distance from others when leaving home.
People legally must wear a face covering if they are a customer or an employee involving customer contact at a business or service operating at Alert Level 4.
Here is a collection of people throughout the district wearing face coverings during the past week’s lockdown. See page 19 of The Ensign for a pattern to make your own face mask.
