What’s On

Waiheke has been in level 3 restrictions since 11.59pm on Tuesday 21 September and although the Government indicated some “step 1” restrictions were relaxed from 11.59pm on Tuesday, 5 October, hospitality venues, event facilities and social gatherings of up to 50 people will not be allowed until “step 3” of level 3. Although these listings were correct at the time Gulf News went to print, there is as yet no dates set for these further steps and restrictions could well be extended further.
