The Government is asking for everyone to stay at home. Their advice is that you can go for a walk or exercise outdoors for a short time, but to stick to simple walks or exercise spots close to home.
If using one of our parks, always stay two metres away from anyone not in your household. If you take your dog, please keep it on a leash at all times to help avoid contact with other dogs. Take your dog poo home and dispose of it in your red bin.
Where there are gates and latches in parks, please avoid using your hands to open and close them. If gates are off their hinges or left open, please leave them as you find them.
Cemeteries are open for pedestrian access only.
The following are closed:

Start just below the Sign of the Kiwi. The track begins beside a low stone wall, leading you around the Lyttelton Harbour side of Coronation Reserve to a saddle on the Summit Road. The track continues uphill, sidling above the Summit Road until it reaches a small open area opposite a large shingly car park.
Cross the Summit Road and pick up the track on the other side. Cross again at Worsleys Road. Here, the track climbs to the top edge of Hoon Hay Reserve then descends gradually, following the Summit Road to the car park at the head of Hoon Hay Valley.
*From here, the walkway is temporarily closed between the junction with Ella's Track and Sign of the Bellbird - and beyond as far as the south side of Mt Cass.
