When does NZ move to the 'traffic light system'?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hundreds of thousands of Kiwis who do not yet have both doses of the Covid-19 vaccine face a tightening of their freedoms on December 3, when the Government moves the entire country into the new “traffic-light” system.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced the date on Monday, saying Covid-19 was not going to be eradicated from New Zealand.

“The hard truth is that Delta is here and not going away,” Ardern said.

While Aucklanders will finally see an end to New Zealand’s longest lockdown, those in other parts of the country could face far more restrictions if they have not been fully-vaccinated.

Interesting Item

Danny from Glenview

Do you know what this is or signifies ?

My mother was given this app 50/60 years ago . It is beautifully made and would have taken considerable time to make. The shells are size matched. Unfortunately one shell is missing.
I presume it is a Pacific Island product. It is app 530 mm across.
I have tried Google but all I have found is cheap tourist items. The quality of this is top class. Definitely not a Souvenir item.
