New Zealand Post has updated that as a result of a confirmed community outbreak of COVID-19 in Auckland, the Government has moved the Auckland region to national COVID-19 Alert Level 3 from 00.00 (midnight) local time on Monday 15 February, provisionally until 23.59 on Wednesday 17 February 2021. The rest of New Zealand has moved to COVID-19 Alert Level 2 for the same period. Postal operation will continue, as was the case during the previous COVID-19 alerts, subject to restrictions. Contactless delivery and pick up processes will be in place, so no signatures taken on delivery. New Zealand Post can no longer guarantee service delivery standards and has invoked Force Majeure until further notice.
