There is a lot riding on this Monday's Covid-19 level announcement, and not just for Aucklanders desperate to get back to a life as relatively normal.

A shift down to level 2 for the country's biggest city could also mean a drop to level one for everyone else - opening the door to events with no restrictions on crowd numbers.

As Conan Young reports, in Christchurch it would allow Cup and Show Week to happen and help to fill some coffers left very empty by lockdown.
