Today Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced that NZ has shifted to Alert Level 3 immediately and will move to Level 4 within 48 hours (by midnight Wednesday).
This means everyone needs to prepare for self-isolation over the next 48 hours. As a direct response to this announcement Orienteering New Zealand has cancelled all club orienteering events until 22nd April 2020. Clubs may choose to reschedule these events at a later date.
Alert Level 4 is expected to continue for 4 weeks at this stage, but this will depend the success these measures have in limiting the spread of COVID-19. More information about the alert level system as well as information can be found on the official government website: https://covid19.govt.nz/
