Water restrictions ease, but not all of them

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Manukau Courier

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?

Covid-19: Where to get tested and vaccinated in Auckland during Labour Weekend

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Kia ora neighbours. It’s still easy to get a Covid-19 test or vaccination, even over Labour Weekend.

On Friday, the Government announced the Auckland, Waitematā and Counties Manukau DHBs would need to have vaccinated 90 per cent of their eligible populations before the Auckland region can leave lockdown.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health is asking residents in New Lynn, Bayswater, Rosedale and Redvale to get tested if they are unwell, due to a concerning number of cases in those areas.

We’ve put together a list of all the vaccine and testing centres that are open for all or part of the long Labour Weekend. Click 'read more' for the list.
