Auckland is set to move to Alert Level 3.2 effective from 11.59pm tomorrow (Tuesday) night.

Public facilities will then be able to open and outdoor gatherings can contain up to 25 people. This is despite the reporting of 190 new community cases today.

Northland is to move to Alert Level 2 at 11.59pm on Thursday 11 November.

Ardern also announced the approval by Medsafe of a THIRD booster shot of the Pfizer mRNA medication for people over 18 years old.

Ardern reiterated that Aucklanders will be able to leave the city during Christmas/New Year period, regardless of the situation in the rest of the country.
