New Zealand’s Moving to Level 2
Last week we heard what Level 2 was going to look like and on Monday the Prime Minister announced that we would move to Level 2 at midnight on Wednesday 13 May 2020 (tonight). At Level 2 it is not “back to normal” as there are some restrictions and other measures in place that define our “new normal”. Life at Level 2 means we can resume many of our everyday activities, but we have to do so safely.
THE COVID-19 VIRUS IS STILL OUT THERE so we all have an obligation to keep ourselves and anyone we come in to contact with, safe. We must continue to do everything we can to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
PKF Carr & Stanton - We’re getting the band back together (safely!)
We are looking forward to having the majority of our team back in the office on Thursday morning (tomorrow).We will also have our doors open if you need to visit us urgently, but as most schools and day care facilities don’t open until Monday 18 May 2020, we won’t be fully functional onsite until Monday.In the meantime, all of our team can still help you via email, phone calls or online meetings. In line with Government guidelines we will be adopting the following protocols for all visitors to our office:
We thank you for your assistance, understanding and compliance with these measures, as we strive to ensure that the sacrifices made by all New Zealanders during Level 3 and 4 are not lost.
