Wellington Level 2

Wellington, Wairarapa and Kāpiti coast,  and to the north of Ōtaki are now in Level 2. This impacts our offices in Wellington, Masterton and Paraparaumu.

The rest of the country will remain at Alert Level 1.

We want you to know we are still here to provide information and support.

Under Alert Level 2:

  • Our supportive care nurses are available to provide support at either our offices, over the phone and via email at every alert level. 
  • Face-to-face support groups and programmes  are currently suspended. If you have an upcoming appointment, we will contact you to reschedule or organise an alternate support option.
  • Transport to treatment is still available, with precautions in place.
  • The Cancer Society’s Margaret Stewart House remains open for people who need to travel for treatment at Wellington Hospital.

If your body’s immune system has been weakened by cancer or cancer treatment, the risk of you having a serious infection is higher – so it’s important for people with cancer to take extra precautions.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call 0800 CANCER (226 237) or email our nurses, info@cancersoc.org.nz.


For more information on the change in alert levels, please visit the Unite Against COVID-19 website.

The rest of the country Level 1

The rest of the country remains in Level 1. All Cancer Society services will be operating as normal and all of our accommodation in Auckland, Palmerston North, Christchurch and Dunedin is open.
