Watch live: Dr Ashley Bloomfield gives Covid-19 update
It's the first day for the country in orange traffic light setting and Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield is giving a Covid-19 update.
Watch here from about 1pm:
New Zealand is now at the orange traffic light setting, which means all gathering limits have gone and customers no longer have to be separated and seated to be served at hospitality venues.
Masks are still required in retail stores and on public transport, but no longer in restaurants or schools.
