Staying healthy at Alert Level 2
New Zealanders have done a great job acting together against COVID-19, says the Ministry of Health.
"We’ve worked hard to ensure physical distancing.
"Now we’re moving to a new phase where many of us are heading back to work and school for the first time in a while."
The Ministry says while some of us will be looking forward to being around people again, it might also feel strange and some people may feel anxious.
"These feelings are completely normal. It's ok to notice that it feels different and to reach out to someone to talk about it or to look for useful tips and guidance online.
"There are several different ways for people to seek help as we settle into this next phase. There is a range of different resources available at COVID-19: Mental health and wellbeing resources.
"It's also a really good time to start a daily wellbeing routine that can help keep you feeling physically and mentally fit. Looking after your mental wellbeing every day helps make coping with tougher times easier.
"Stay healthy and stay safe New Zealand."
