COVID-19 Update - Alert Level 4
Monday, 23 March 2020
Concrete NZ is committed to informing members, especially at this challenging time. With New Zealand now moving towards Alert Level 4, we have updates on some key resources.
The Government has confirmed that construction is not an 'essential business' under COVID-19 Alert Levels 3 & 4, with the exception of construction required for essential services, critical infrastructure and to maintain human health and safety at home or work.
As such, the construction industry is essentially in lockdown while Level 3 & 4 alerts are in place.
