Here's the plan:

Pillar 1 is about investment. National proposes we supercharge our vaccine roll-out, including going door to door in vulnerable communities, and boosting testing measures.

Pillar 2 is to evolve. This 70-75 per cent vaccination. Once we reach this point, "we can end nationwide lockdowns".

Pillar 3 "is to open". This is our pathway to reconnect NZ to the world. Travelling under pillar 3 will be new. Countries will be specified by green, orange and red zones.

A key part of the plan is to get away from nationwide lockdowns, Bishop said. Lockdowns would be the "very last resort".

It's about using all of the tools in the toolbox, he said, as well as dealing with cases as they arise.
