Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern provided an update following the Cabinet meeting this afternoon. “My message remains the same … stay the course. We cannot afford to squander the good work to date when our end goal is close and within reach,” Ardern said.
A week from today, on 11 May, Cabinet will decide whether the country will move down from level 3 or continue on.
The one scenario government has been clear about is to avoid yo-yoing between levels.
Cabinet today discussed what level 2 would look like.
Ardern said would share that details on Thursday.
“It will provide clarity and certainty and give people time to prepare.
“No decision has been made on moving out level 3 at this stage.”
