Until the next "spike".

Well done NZ!

Great news, but I believe old people should stay home as much as possible and supermarkets and shops should have special senior citizens only openings.

Restrictions outside Auckland weren't necessary in the first place. The South Island for example has been COVID free for months.

Aucklanders have been travelling to the South Island for the benefit of tourism businesses so limited restrictions were necessary

Well done Kiwis, well done PM Ardern. Showing the world how things should be done, with common-sense.

Uh, yeah. If the virus isn't spreading, then no need for restrictions. If it is, there are. Right wingers seem very confused about cause and effect.

The NZ authorities seem to have the situation under control, but they can't afford to take their eyes off the ball of contagion. This pandemic is in no hurry to "disappear like a miracle" and will likely be circulating around the world for another 12 months. Viruses thrive on crowds in densely populated countries, which has probably been an important factor in "edge-of-the- world" NZ's dodging the covid bullet so far.

Jacinda Ardern in particular seems to want to bring the NZ economy to its knees. I can understand caution with Auckland but not with the rest of the country.
