SkyCity Too Loosen COVID-19 Restrictions At Auckland Casino

SkyCity Too Loosen COVID-19 Restrictions At Auckland Casino”

But a new cluster emerged in Auckland in August, forcing the city of 1.5 million into lockdown for nearly three weeks.

The measures have worked, however, and restrictions have been lifted in Auckland after it went 12 days without reporting a single case of community transmission.

Subsequently, on Wednesday 7 October, 2020, Auckland will switch to warning level one from 11:59pm, joining the rest of the world on its COVID alert system at the lowest level in New Zealand.

The Auckland cluster was New Zealand's biggest but all signs pointed to it being under control, Labour leader Jacinda Ardern said.

She said that rather than being fearful, we should get to a position where New Zealanders feel confident. "But despite that, Aucklanders and New Zealanders stuck to the plan that has worked twice now, and beat the virus again".

There are no active community cases of COVID-19 remaining.

Health Minister Chris Hipkins said no active cases in the community was a "big milestone". "There is now a 95% probability of the cluster being eliminated, COVID-19 will be with us for many months to come".

"While having stamped out COVID-19 in our community for the second time is a real achievement that New Zealanders should be proud of, there is an ongoing risk that further community cases will emerge in the future".

The first two cases arrived from Ethiopia via Dubai on September 23.

On October 1, the person who tested positive arrived from Hong Kong and returned a positive test about day three as part of routine testing, and they were moved to the Auckland quarantine facility.

New Zealand's number of total active cases is now 37 - all from managed isolation.

New Zealand has reported 25 deaths from the virus since the pandemic began, and now has 40 active cases out of a population of five million people. In September, over 1,000 people gathered in Aotea Square in Auckland in what was dubbed the "National Rally for Freedom".

In the two months since this outbreak began, laboratories nationally have processed nearly half a million tests - almost the same number as in the whole six months prior.

The new limits on social distancing mean no more than 100 people will be able to gather in a public space, including bars and entertainment areas; opening the door for Sky City Auckland to return to operations.
