New World thanks customers and teams as COVID traffic light system ends 

Monday, 12 September 2022

Kia ora,

Following the Government’s announcement the Covid-19 Protection Framework (traffic light system) will end at 11.59pm on Monday, 12 September 2022.   

New World says a very big thank you to all our teams and customers for their continued support and mahi with keeping New Zealanders safe throughout the pandemic. 

The end of the traffic light system means all government mask wearing requirements have been removed, so customers and team members aren’t required to wear masks while shopping at the supermarket –  but you can if you want, or need to.  

Customers and team members who test positive for Covid-19 are currently required to isolate for seven days, so please make an order on-line, or get a friend or neighbour to shop for you if you need groceries. 

We want you to know while COVID-19 is still in our communities, we’ll continue to focus on, and take all the appropriate measures, to provide a safe shopping experience and workplace.   

Thank you so much for all your support along the way, we really do appreciate it, this is a real milestone, you’ve been incredible.
