Wellington is moving to Alert Level 2 at 6pm tonight (23 June) until 11.59pm on Sunday 27 June. This includes Wairarapa and the Kāpiti Coast to north of Ōtaki. The rest of New Zealand will remain at Alert Level 1.

Minister Hipkins announced today that the greater Wellington region will stay at Alert Level 2 for a further 48 hours until 11.59pm on Tuesday 29 June. The rest of New Zealand will continue at Alert Level 1. I know many in Wellington will have been hoping for a return to Level 1, but until there is a higher level of confidence about community transfer, it is wise to take a precautionary approach
