UNBELIEVABLE!!. When is this ever going to end? Come November 1st, no doubt there will still be ongoing restrictions to our freedom.
What I resent so much, is that those of us who have been vacccinated for months, played the game, did every thing we were meant to, and still we are locked down.
All these Govt. promises that when Auckland reaches 90% vaccination we will have more freedom. What a joke. 89% vacccinated, how can it take until 1st November to vaccinate 1%.
I am so angry at all these months of being dictated to as to how I can live my life. Or not live it, might be more accurate!
The regions which will be moving into the new Covid-19 Protection Framework at Red on Friday have been announced.
Northland, Auckland, Taupō and Rotorua Lakes Districts, Kawerau, Whakatane, Ōpōtiki Districts, Gisborne District, Wairoa District, Rangitikei, Whanganui and Ruapehu Districts will all move to Red. The rest of the North Island and all of the South Island will move into Orange. These settings will next be reviewed on 13 December.
The existing Auckland boundary will remain in place until 17 January, and no new travel restrictions will be put in place. Vaccine passes will also come into force with the traffic light system.

Kia ora neigbours, the death of a man who opened fire on police officers, injuring three, is a “tragedy for everyone”, Police Commissioner Andrew Coster says.
Police are still working to piece together what happened in the lead-up to the incident in Glen Eden on Monday morning.
All three of the injured police officers, two of whom had “moderate” injuries, were being treated at Auckland City Hospital.
“When I heard three officers had been shot, my heart sank,” Coster said.

Kia ora neighbours, the traffic lights are in sight and we'd love to know what you're most looking forward to once Aucklanders have more freedom. Maybe it's being reunited with family outside Auckland, going to the pub, or just being able to hang out inside a friend's house (and use their loo!).
