Today's announcement puts the Hospitality sector's survival under threat - targeted support is required
The Government’s decisions today to extend Auckland’s Level 3 lockdown restrictions (until Sunday, 30 August at 11.59pm) and keep the rest of the country in Alert Level 2 is hugely disappointing and frustrating for the hospitality industry, says Hospitality New Zealand.
Hospitality New Zealand Chief Executive, Julie White, says “The safety of all New Zealanders is our first priority. We supported the Government’s directive to stamp out COVID-19 when it reemerged in the Auckland community, however, it’s very frustrating for the regions outside of Auckland to still have to operate under Level 2. It’s still extremely restrictive for our operators.
