23 March 2020 | COVID-19 – Alert Level 4 11.59pm Weds 25 March
New Zealand will move into COVID-19 Alert Level 4 from midnight tomorrow. Like many local and central agencies, we have been planning for weeks and we are prepared and ready to respond to this rapidly evolving situation. This will be the last Everything Kāpiti for a while, as many of our staff are diverted to support essential services like infrastructure and community welfare. Doing the hard yards now to stamp out COVID-19 will help protect our community from the worst of this pandemic. Failure to stay at home and comply with the rules puts everyone in our community at risk and will likely mean that we'll be in lockdown for longer. Remember to keep calm, clean and kind, Kāpiti – we’re all in this together.
