New Zealand has moved to Alert Level 1 and lifted almost all of its COVID-19 restrictions after 17 days of no active cases of the virus.
New Zealand went into lockdown for the first time on March 25, and had set up a new four-stage alert system. The country had been in level four, where most businesses were shut, schools closed, and people told to stay at home. On June 8, they entered level 1.
