Covid Alert Levels

Jason McIntosh made this Official Information request to Ministry of Health

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Jason McIntosh to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Jason McIntosh

Dear Ministry of Health,
Looking at your enforced Covid Alert Levels , I realise that you have no ‘Alert Level Zero .’ Is this an obvious sign that the Government is planning to renew its ‘Temporary Emergency Health Response Powers’ indefinitely?

Yours faithfully, j McIntosh

[IN-CONFIDENCE]

 

Kia ora Mr McIntosh,

 

The Alert Level framework is determined by the Government and specifies
the public health and social measures to be taken in the fight against
COVID-19.

 

The measures may be updated based on new scientific knowledge about
COVID-19, information about the effectiveness of control measures in New
Zealand and overseas, or the applications of Alert Levels at different
times.

 

As the pandemic situation constantly evolves alert levels ensure the
public’s health and safety remains paramount.

The reference to ‘Temporary Emergency Health Response Powers’  is a matter
for Ministry of Health to respond to.

On 13 May 2020 the COVID-19 Public Health Response Act 2020 came into force. This Act allows the government the power to issue Covid Orders.

There has been no "state of emergency" since last May.
