A new campaign has been launched to help New Zealand businesses recover from the severe impacts of the COVID-19 lockdown.
The Government announced on Monday that the country’s level 4 lockdown would be extended until 11:59pm on Monday when it would be downgraded to level 3 for two weeks.
Currently, only essential businesses are allowed to operate but at the lower alert level, any business deemed “safe” will be allowed to reopen – provided all face-to-face contact is avoided. Delivering online shopping to customers will now also be allowed.
To help some of those businesses and retailers get back off the ground, a campaign called #shopkiwi has been started, allowing New Zealand companies to sell products directly to consumers online.
