Watch Live: Country to move into new traffic light system next month
The country will move into the new Covid-19 traffic light framework at 11.59pm on Thursday, December 2, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says.
Ardern and Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield addressed the media at the usual 4pm Monday press conference.
It comes after 205 community cases were reported - the fourth-highest daily total - and a person in their 40s had died with Covid-19.
Hairdressers and barbers in Auckland can open from this Thursday in Auckland in a vaccination certificate trial.
Ardern urges people to get vaccinated before the traffic light system comes into effect because those who are unvaccinated won't be able to do many things.
