New Zealand – Measures to limit the spread of COVID-19

25 June, 2021


​New Zealand Post, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that, as a result of a recent confirmed case of COVID-19 in Wellington, the New Zealand Government has moved the Wellington region to Alert Level 2 of the national COVID-19 pandemic plan, with effect from 18.00 local time on 23 June 2021. This will remain in force until 23.59 local time on Sunday, 27 June 2021, while testing and contact tracing is underway. The Government will make a further announcement following a review by the Cabinet on Sunday morning. This alert level entails measures such as staff working from home, social distancing and reduced shift sizes in order to ensure a safe working environment. Therefore, New Zealand Post's operational performance in the Wellington region will be materially impacted while this alert level remains in place, as it will be operating with limited processing and delivery resources, thus placing constraints on capacity and service performance capability. New Zealand Post thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding.
