New Zealand staying in red will help give the health system more breathing space.

The Government has decided not to change our traffic light settings, with hospitalisations not expected to peak in parts of the country until mid to late April.

Cabinet will reassess Thursday of next week.

College of Emergency Nurses member Sandy Richardson told Kate Hawkesby this'll give time to see whether what's happening in hospital is mirroring the community.

She says they'll be able to see whether the days patients spend in hospital are reducing, and the number of sick staff is reducing.
