Water restrictions ease, but not all of them

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Western Leader

Auckland's dam levels are almost at 67 per cent capacity, with restrictions easing for commercial operators.

A ban on outdoor hose and water blaster use for residential users remains in place. With an agreement allowing Auckland to take an extra 25 million litres a day, do you think that these household restrictions are necessary?

Poll: Do you like the design of the new Team New Zealand's America's Cup vessel?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Meet Team New Zealand's new America's Cup boat.

Te Rehutai was seen foiling under sail on its first outing after its Thursday night launch.

She was towed out from the team's base on Friday morning and got up on her foils while under tow during the planned test programme of sailing on the Waitemata Harbour.

A question of 'rights'?🤔

Fiona from Henderson

A quick question (or 3) for you all.
Do we as customers, have the right to ask for proof of a negative COVID test if we are being attended to by someone who has a continuous cough and sniffs a lot, even though this person was wearing a mask?
If said customer service rep says it's allergies and also throws in for good measure that they have been tested negative for COVID, do we ask to see proof of that result?
Do you mention it to management and risk being treated with hostility when you return?
If you can't be attended by anyone else apart from that person, what would you do?

Favourite summer holiday spots

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your favourite summer holiday spots in NZ. Is there somewhere you keep returning to year after year and, if so, what are the main attractions? What makes it such a stand-out spot? Any tips you may be able to offer on the best things to see and do there - as well as the best places to grab a drink or bite to eat - would be much appreciated. Please put 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you don't want it to appear in a travel article. Thanks again.
