Moving to Level 3

At time of writing, we are just days away from heading into Alert Level 3. Many of us will be looking forward to our local businesses re-opening for non-contact services.

For more information about which Devonport business are opening and services provided, follow Devonport Business Association’s ‘Devonport Village’ social media pages.

Let’s remember though that under Alert Level 3, we need to stay at home other than for essential personal movement and going to work/school. We also need to stay in our extended bubble, which can now include close family or caregivers.
