New Zealand has not seen any new cases of COVID-19 in over two weeks. This has allowed the nation to moved to a level one restriction which is the lowest of a four-tier alert system. As of now, social distancing is not required and there are no limits on public gatherings.

However, if you have dreams of making up for lost ski days by jumping on a flight down under, it’s not gonna happen. The country’s borders remain closed to all foreigners and any New Zealanders arriving from abroad must go through a 14-day period of isolation or self-quarantine.

Despite the international lockdown, or maybe because of it, all events and public transport can resume without any restrictions.

According to the John Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center, New Zealand has recorded 15,504 confirmed cases and 22 deaths from Covid-19 since the virus arrived.
