New Zealand – Level 2 unveiled – cafes open from Thursday, schools from Monday


Malls, cafes and restaurants re-open from Thursday and schools resume next Monday but bars must wait 10 days as the country moves to alert level 2 in 48 hours.

On Thursday, retail stores, malls, cafes, restaurants, cinema and other public spaces can reopen. All require physical distancing. Health services will also restart.

The deadline was 11.59pm on Wednesday, meaning effectively alert level 2 started on Thursday, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said. US SPREAD GOOD NEWS!
