Parents are being told they may need to keep home-schooling their children beyond the level four lockdown.

The government is creating a package so that students can learn at home when term two officially begins next Wednesday.

The news comes as the number of new Covid-19 cases continues to decline with 50 confirmed and probable cases over the past 24 hours - the lowest in two weeks.

RNZ political reporter Charlie Dreaver has the details.
