From Midday Report, 12:16 pm on 20 September 2021

This afternoon, Aucklanders will hear if they will remain in their alert level four – or move down a step to three.

However with an outbreak in the Waikato region, there are concerns an anticipated change will be delayed.

Lara Greaves, a lecturer in New Zealand Politics and Public Policy at University of Auckland, told Māni Dunlop politics will play a part in the decision.
