Covid-19 Level 2: Slices of normality on Wellington's streets

From Midday Report, 12:11 pm on 14 May 2020

Thousands of people have been out on the country's roads and walking central city streets for the first time in weeks this morning, as cafes, pools, and gyms reopen and people head back to their offices under Alert Level 2.

The queue outside Auckland's "The Barbers Room" on Dominion Road extended around the block before 9am, and in New Plymouth gym-goers were showing up for a workout before 5am.

Meanwhile in Wellington, people have been out in droves visiting the city's cafes.
