Poll: Are you planning to hit the bars this weekend?

The Team Reporter from Dominion Post

Wellington's bars will reopen for the first time under alert level 2 on Thursday, and owners are praying for punters to come out in their droves.

Hospitality New Zealand Wellington branch president Matt McLaughlin is fearing for the future of the capital's bars.

"Courtenay Place which, to me, is New Zealand's premier entertainment precinct could be wiped off the face of the Earth in two months, which is really concerning."

There will be strict rules in place, with bar patrons seated, separated by a metre, and served by a single person.

How have you reacted to the news

The Team Reporter from Dominion Post

Hi neighbours

The discovery of four Covid-19 cases outside of managed isolation on Tuesday has ended New Zealand's 102 day streak without community transmission. As a result, Auckland has returned to level 3, while the rest of New Zealand step back to level 2.

For those of us outside of Auckland, it means maintaining physical distancing of 2 metres, no more than 100 people at gatherings, and considering working from home if possible.

How have you reacted to the news? Are you now working from home? Are you wearing a face mask when you leave the house? And be honest, have you panic-bought toilet paper?

Stay safe everyone and take care of each other.

What moving to level 2 means for the rest of NZ

The Team Reporter from Stuff

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.
