As we move into the traffic light system, we are able to have increasing contact with others.
However, this will not be the same as it was prior to COVID-19. There will be additional requirements in place based on whether vaccine certificates are used, and things like face coverings and distancing will remain to protect at-risk populations. Although we may still experience some physical isolation, we are all in this together. Remember as parents, mātua, and carers of tamariki we need to protect them as we would a pā tūwatawata/fortress, marae or kainga.
