The message reads:

As people across New Zealand and the Commonwealth are experiencing unprecedented changes to their lives, concern for family and friends, and financial uncertainty, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

I send my enduring thanks to those who continue to put the service of others above themselves, whether by staying at home, providing essential services, or by caring for the most vulnerable.

It is through this sense of community, dedication and faith, that I am confident New Zealanders will rise to the challenge and overcome.

Kia kaha, kia mãia, kia manawanui.

I send my warmest good wishes to you all.
