However, the largest city of Auckland will remain in the strictest lockdown for at least another week.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the outbreak has not yet been contained in Auckland, therefore restrictions will continue.

The nation has been battling a Delta outbreak for the previous month, with the country recording 821 cases throughout this outbreak.

“We’ve done so well to bringing this outbreak under control, level four restrictions are working but the job is not done,” Ardern said.

“We’re within sight of elimination but we can’t drop the ball.”
