Morning neighbours,

How was your commute to work this morning? Was your bus, train or ferry emptier? Were passengers wearing masks and social distancing? For those driving into town, was traffic lighter for you? Or did you choose to work from home?

Physical distancing was reintroduced by Metlink on Wednesday, which meant commuters would have to keep 1 metre apart on buses, trains and ferries, and keep a 2m distance at wharfs and stations.

Metlink general manager Scott Gallacher said “there will be no timetable changes under alert level 2 but passengers will be expected to practice personal hygiene and physical distancing measures”.

Hi neighbours,

On Tuesday night, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced there were four new Covid-19 cases in the community.

Auckland moved into level 3 at midday on Wednesday, and the rest of the country into level 2.

Kiwis outside of Auckland can still continue to go to work and school, with physical distancing, and are advised to wear masks in public.

Businesses can open to the public if they are following public health guidance, which includes physical distancing and record keeping.

In terms of gatherings, New Zealanders must not travel to events with more than 100 people. This includes weddings, birthdays, funerals and tangihanga.

The Government advises all Kiwis to practise good hygiene and stay home if sick.
