COVID-19 INFORMATION: INSTRUCTIONS TO STOP PHYSICAL CONTACT SEX WORK BY MIDNIGHT WEDNESDAY 25 MARCH 2020

NZPC recognises that sex work is work and is the main form of income for a number of people.

However, with New Zealand going to a Level 4 alert, sex workers are asked to comply with the requirement to stay at home during the 4-week period of isolation indicated by the Government. Only those in essential services will be permitted to work. Sex work is not classed among the essential services (doctors, pharmacists, police, ambulance, fire, vets, food production, and supermarkets).

Therefore NZPC wants all sex workers to comply with the 4-week closure.

Failure to comply could result in officials arriving at your place of work to enforce compliance.

We also recommend that sex workers apply online for whatever benefits they may be entitled to. Information from WINZ is available here: https://www.workandincome.govt.nz/

NZPC isn’t always able to keep up to date with all information about this virus. For up-to-date information on COVID-19, please check the Unite Against COVID-19 website: https://covid19.govt.nz/
