With New Zealand now in Alert Level 2, Vector is resuming more of our operations. While we are cautiously optimistic that the hard work and sacrifice of New Zealanders is beginning to pay off, we are acutely aware that the threat of COVID-19 will be with us for some time.
Our crews continue to work under Level 3 protocols
Vector continues to put the safety of our people, their families and our communities at the heart of all our decisions.
Our crews in the field will continue to work under the same Alert Level 3 protocols for at least a further two weeks following the national move to Alert Level 2. This means our crews will follow strict COVID-specific protocols around contact tracing, hygiene and physical distancing, while also respecting and complying with health and safety protocols of others they may be working with.
This approach recognises the potential risk from the increased public activity following the national move to Alert Level 2 and is in line with our commitment to safety and preserving our ability to provide our essential services.
