From Wednesday, council playgrounds, basketball courts, skateparks, toilets and other outdoor facilities, will re-open as Auckland enters Level 3 – Step 1. However it may take a few days for tape to be removed and hoops to be re-installed. QR codes will be installed at some high-use parks for scanning with the NZ COVID Tracer app.
You can now meet another bubble for a picnic, but please be aware of any local liquorbans!
Please remember this is still Level 3, however with the following changes:
- Your bubble can now meet one other bubble at a time outside, up to a maximum of 10 people from the two bubbles. Eg: You can invite people from another household over for dinner in your backyard, but they cannot enter your house.
- You can travel across Auckland for recreation.
- Playgrounds, basketball courts, etc, are now open but the two bubble rule applies.
- Early Learning Centres can reopen if they can handle bubbles of up to 10 children.
