Auckland lockdown extended until Sunday, rest of country to stay at level 2

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Auckland will remain in lockdown until Sunday, a four-day extension of the lockdown which was meant to lift on Wednesday.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said there were promising signs that the Government was getting on top of the virus, but a short extension was recommended by director-general of health Ashley Bloomfield.

On Sunday night Auckland would move down to level 2. The rest of the country would stay at level 2.

Ardern said the rest of the country needed to stay at an elevated alert level to mitigate the risk of cases leaving Auckland when interregional travel resumed. Click here to read more.

power prices

Wendy from Maeroa

last week i received an email from trustpower saying that the govt had set up an electricity price review which recommended the removal of the 15% discount for prompt payment. Then they said they have/will adjust the unit prices so we pay about the same. BUT today I have another email saying that gas prices charges for the property are going to rise by 16c/ day. Looks suspiciously like a work around to increase prices ! Has anyone else had similar info coming to them?
