With the elimination strategy of COVID-19 seeming very successful, all domestic restrictions have now been lifted throughout the country. Residents can now travel freely throughout New Zealand, however it is still important to maintain hygiene practices and physical distancing where needed.
This means on a house sit, the home must be thoroughly cleaned by the owner at the commencement of the sit, and then cleaned thoroughly by the sitter at the end of the sit.
If a sitter or owner has any symptoms, even mild ones, make sure you get tested and then stay home while waiting for the results.
Enjoy some well-deserved domestic travel to see family and friends, or a break away. Stay up to date with the latest updates to restrictions here: https://www.health.govt.nz. We look forward to our house-sitting community thriving again.
Please know that you can contact us if you have any questions or need assistance at any time. As a community we will get through this together and go onto many more travel adventures.
