Opening at Alert Level 3

As of next Tuesday 28 April, chicken and chips can be prepared and sold in dairies and petrol stations but you will need some form of sneeze guard and customers cannot stay in store to eat onsite. See below for the specific rules and click on the website link for clarification.

What are the specific rules for supermarkets, dairies and petrol stations at the different alert levels?

Supermarkets can remain open at all alert levels. Public health measures may mean there are some changes to how they operate, such as a capacity limit.

Dairies can remain open at all alert levels. At Alert Levels 3 and 4, customers can only go into dairies on a one-in-one-out basis. At Alert Level 4, dairies cannot sell food or drink that has been prepared or cooked on-site (e.g. coffee, milkshakes, or made-to-order sandwiches), but they can sell food that has been prepared and packaged off-site by a supplier (even if it needs heating, e.g. pies, sausage rolls). At Alert Level 3, prepared food and drink can be bought and sold, but cannot be consumed by customers onsite.

Petrol stations can remain open at all alert levels. At Alert Level 4, prepared food cannot be sold at petrol stations (e.g. coffees) but they can sell food that has been prepared and packaged off-site by a supplier (even if it needs heating, e.g. pies, sausage rolls). At Alert Level 3, prepared food can be bought and sold, but cannot be consumed by customers on-site.
