COVID - 19 Information and updates



At Cookes, the Health, Safety and wellbeing of the public, our customers and team remain paramount, especially as we all navigate the uncharted waters surrounding the Covid-19 crisis globally and nationally.

Please use this section of our website to find the most current and up to date information on how we are responding to the current COVID-19 Pandemic. We understand the need our essential services customers have for transparency and responsiveness during this period of uncertainty. We will do all we can to ensure this page has all the information required to ensure you can keep NZ running during the lockdown. 


As an integral part of the supply chain to essential services, during this time, we will continue to provide sales and service support ONLY to our essential business & lifeline utility customers. Work over coming weeks will be conducted at a largely reduced capacity to ensure our people are safe and that we comply with the governments level 4 alert protocols.
