Aucklanders are out are enjoying their first day of eased Covid-19 restrictions.
The Covid-19 Protection Framework – known as the traffic light system – came into effect at 11.59pm on Thursday, making Friday “Freedom Day” for Aucklanders as the city moved to the red light setting.

There were 92 new community cases reported on Friday. Of those, 80 are in Auckland, two are in Waikato, one in Northland, five in Bay of Plenty, one in Lakes DHB, one in Nelson/Marlborough and two in Taranaki.
