New Zealand's Covid alert levels are come down - so what?

From Lately, 10:20 pm on 21 September 2020

From midnight tonight most of New Zealand returns to alert level one and there will no longer be a limit on the number of people who can gather socially.

It's five weeks and five days since New Zealand last experienced the social freedom of alert level one.

But Auckland remains at alert level two for another fortnight with a slight change to restrictions on social gatherings with a lift from 10 to 100 people from midnight on Wednesday.
