According to Deadline, the New Zealand Film Commission has approved with the government the protocols that the productions must follow to maintain the safety of the workers. Each shoot will have to be registered in a web portal so that they can be tracked. In this portal you can also see what the protocols are like and what measures should be taken in different cases. The protocols have been developed by the state agency ScreenSafe with industry experts and union members.
This means that several important shoots could return to work, such as the case of Avatar 2 and the Lord of the Rings series from Amazon Prime Video. The first one recently showed some photos of their underwater filming but they did not specify a date or place so it could be from before the pandemic forced them to stop filming.
