Covid-19 – Freemasons New Zealand

Website: the source of all truth in New Zealand

The New Zealand Government has all of New Zealand on Alert Level 1.  Lodges can open and work to their Risk Migration Plan (which aligns with government regulations) as agreed with their District Grand Master.

Remember, we should be exercising social distancing and wearing a face mask where possible or if mandated, using good hand hygiene, remembering where you have been for contact tracing and if you are unwell staying at home and away from work or Lodge and seeking medical attention. 

Travel Bubbles (quarantine free travel) currently exist with Australia (sometimes State restrictions) and the Cook Islands.

Grand Masters Message, Operating Guidelines and Resources for operation of Lodges below

Be kind
Make a difference by supporting friends, neighbours and whānau, especially the elderly and vulnerable.
Stay home
Everyone should stay at home. This is the best thing we can all do to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Wash your hands
Wash often. Use soap. 20 seconds. Then dry. This kills the virus by bursting its protective bubble.
