Aucklanders have been out and about today following minor loosening of level 3 Delta rules.
That includes numerous boaties finally firing up their boats for fishing trips off Auckland's coastline after a nationwide level 4 lockdown was brought in on August 18.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has reinforced that those mingling between extended bubbles had to do it outdoors and hosts were not to allow visitors inside to use bathrooms.
From today those in the locked down Auckland region have been able to extend their bubbles slightly; with gatherings of up to 10 people – from a maximum of two bubbles – able to meet outside.

For those planning to enjoy a picnic outdoors in a park or garden the advice is to keep social distancing and wear a mask, apart from when people are eating and drinking.
