There are a lot of questions from New Zealanders as the government plans for the country to go into level four Covid-19 alert - full lockdown. As the country prepares to go into lockdown in the next 48 hours, RNZ endeavours to answer questions around essential services, self-isolation, travel and what the rest of the week might start to look like. Taxi drivers and rideshare services are considered essential services so they will continue. Any breach of these rules will mean we have to stay in lockdown for longer and our chance to beat the virus will be lost. At level 4 only essential services may continue, so this person will be required to stay at home.
