COVID-19: New Zealand is at alert Level 4. It is likely Level 4 measures will stay in place for a number of weeks. For more information on alert levels, go here.

State Of Emergency is also declared, the legislation of which allows it to be in place for seven days and can be extended. There is a lot to think about and the constant streams of news can be overwhelming.

Carers NZ understands that this is a difficult and uncertain time, particularly when you’re responsible for supporting others. If you are caring for others it is important to know what support is available to you as a carer and those you look after, and we want to reassure you that we are here to guide you to what support there is out there.

We’ll keep updating this information as New Zealand’s COVID-19 situation evolves.
