Schools will close entirely from midnight Wednesday.All indoor and outdoor events will be cancelled. All workplaces were asked to implement alternative ways of working.Public transport will shut for everyone outside of people working in essential services.To stop community transmission these measures will need to be in place for 4 weeks, said Ardern.New Zealand’s opposition National Party said it had put on hold its campaign for a general election on Sept 19.
