The government is committed to ensuring the right levels of intervention in the right places to manage outbreaks. Working with local authorities through the contain framework, the approach has been simplified so that there are now 3 local Covid-19 alert levels.
The three levels of Covid-19 alert are: medium alert, this is for areas where national restrictions continue to be in place; high alert, this is for areas with a higher level of infections where some additional restrictions are in place; very high alert, this is for areas with a very high level of infections and where tighter restrictions are in place. The restrictions placed on areas with a very high level of infections can vary, and are based on discussions between central and local government.
