Under Alert Level 3, you are required to work from home if you can:

Workplaces can only open if:

  • workers cannot work from home, and

  • workplaces are operating safely, and

  • customers are not allowed on the premises, and

  • businesses can trade without physical contact with customers, for example through phone or online orders, delivery, pick-up and drive-through.


Businesses cannot offer services that involve close personal contact, unless it is an essential service, emergency or critical situation.

If businesses cannot operate safely, employees must not go to work and premises should remain closed.

“Operating safely” means:

  • complying with Alert Level 3 settings on this page, and

  • meeting appropriate public health requirements for their workplace, including for workers, for example putting up barriers, and

  • fulfilling all other health and safety obligations.
