  • So let's then talk about workplaces at level two.

  • Businesses can restart for staff and for customers,

  • services can be provided on customers premises,

  • for example in people's homes

  • and people who haven't been into their office spaces can return,

  • but with good hygiene practices in place.

  • That brings me to the issue of gatherings.

  • Our journey and understanding this virus has also led us to reaffirm

  • that at level two, indoor gatherings are limited to a maximum of 100.

  • Do want to just acknowledge that is a maximum.

  • Of course, many venues for their fire regulations will not be able

  • to have that many and many will not be able to physically seat that many

  • But we have also learned a lot through this journey

  • and that means we will also limit outdoor gatherings to 100 people also.

  • For managed events like weddings, music events, religious services, funerals,

  • these can be held at level two when we get there

  • but with all the same public health guidance and with the 100 person limit.

  • You no longer need to stick to your bubble.

  • You can begin seeing family and friends again

  • but we do want you to hang on to the same principles that we are using generally

  • and hospitality,

  • issues around space and hygiene and contact tracing.

  • If we have large-scale events held in people's home then all of that

  • becomes harder.

  • That is why at alert level two we are saying that you can have

  • friends and family over to your home but keep the numbers small.

  • At level two, playgrounds, gyms, pools and public courts are permitted to reopen

  • subject to meeting the required public health measures.

  • All water activities can resume, some community sports will be able to return

  • to play more quickly than others while the necessary health requirements

  • are worked through.

  • So we ask that you give your club a chance to get up and running again

  • and to work through some of those issues.

  • We all want to get back to sport but we want to take enough time

  • to do it safely and to look after those who are involved in it.

  • Professional sport will be able to resume domestically under level two

  • with the necessary public health measures in place.

  • Super rugby and the netball premiership league have already confirmed

  • their intention to resume a domestic competition at alert level two,

  • which I know will be cause for great excitement for many.

  • The rules around mass gatherings will still apply so there won't be

  • any stadium crowds for now but sport will be played.

So let's then talk about workplaces at level two.
