Covid-19: How Wellington is working under lockdown level 3

From Checkpoint, 5:08 pm on 28 April 2020

It was back to business for hundreds of thousands more New Zealanders on Tuesday, but business was far from usual.

Lockdown level 3 eased some restrictions to breathe some life back into the economy, and allow a few more activities.

But strict bans remain on socialising or group gatherings. With new Covid-19 safety practices in place across the board, it has taken some adjusting, but businesses and shoppers say they are just happy to get the money moving again.

Checkpoint reporter Logan Church and cameraman Dom Thomas have spent the day talking to business owners coming up with creative ways to operate under the new rules.
