Retailers are offering delivery and click and collect services but some orders are taking longer than usual with the increased demand for online shopping. You may experience delays with orders coming from overseas retailers as there are limited flights coming into New Zealand.

It’s now strongly recommended that anyone who lives in the Auckland region wears a face covering when leaving home. Kiwis in other parts of New Zealand are advised to use a face covering when social distancing is not possible. From 31 August 2020, masks are mandatory when using public transport, taxis and Uber.

Some of the most effective masks include P2, KN95, and surgical masks. Here’s where you can buy P2, N95 and KN95 masks online.

When should or shouldn’t I use a P2, N95 or KN95 face mask in New Zealand?

According to the Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization, the people who will benefit the most from use of a face mask are those who are already sick and healthcare workers who have close contact with sick people.

Masks are most effective when used in combination with frequent hand washing or use of an alcohol-based hand sanitiser.

You can find out more information on when and how to use masks here on the World Health Organization’s site.
