Due to supply chain issues that arise from Alert Level 4 as building products that are manufactured domestically are mostly manufactured in Auckland, the Government has agreed to allow some building product manufacturing to take place in Auckland during Covid-19 lockdown to support continued residential construction activity across New Zealand.
Changes to the Covid-19 Health Order will allow for plasterboard, gypsum plaster and coated roofing steel. This work must be undertaken with the minimum number of staff safely required and must be conducted in accordance with Alert Level 4 rules.
The change to the Health Order to enable this to happen will be made over the next 48 hours. MBIE will manage the process of companies who are eligible to undertake this work.
