This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

This order, which comes into force at 11.59 pm on 1 November 2021, amends the COVID-19 Resurgence Support Payments Scheme (August 2021) Order 2021 (the August order). The August order requires that, for a person to be eligible for a grant under the COVID-19 resurgence support payments scheme (August 2021), the person—

  • must have experienced a minimum 30% decline in revenue in relation to a business or organisation during a nominated 7-day period; and

  • the nominated 7-day period must be during the specified period for that grant.

Under the August order, each specified period ends immediately before all areas of New Zealand return to COVID-19 alert level 1. This order amends the August order to provide that the specified periods for each of the first, second, and third grants end at the close of 1 November 2021.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2019.
