“We have won that battle,” she announced.

Yesterday, a few non-essential businesses, healthcare and education activities were able to resume. However, to ensure that the situation remains under control, most people are required to remain at home for the time being. Those going outdoors need to practice social distancing.

“We are opening up the economy, but we’re not opening up people’s social lives,” Ardern said.
