COVID-19 Orchard Guidelines

Level 2

At 11.59pm Wednesday, 13 May, New Zealand transitions to COVID-19 Alert Level 2.

All businesses can operate at Level 2 if they can meet Public Health requirements. The key difference for Level 2 is that workplaces are now required to operate 1 metre distancing rather than 2 metres which was required under Levels 3 & 4.  Systems for hygiene, contact tracing and identifying people with signs of sickness are still required. Registration of businesses is not required.

NZKGI has updated our guideline to help growers and contractors meet their requirements under Level 2.
