Extension of Alert Level 2.5 incredibly challenging for the hospitality sector – Hospitality New Zealand urges government to relax 10 person cap on Auckland social gatherings


The Government’s decisions today to extend Auckland’s Level 2.5 lockdown restrictions and keep the rest of the country in Alert Level 2 (until Cabinet’s next review on the 14th September) still provides challenging conditions for the hospitality industry to operate in, says Hospitality New Zealand.


Hospitality New Zealand Chief Executive, Julie White, says “It’s encouraging to know we aren’t going up alert levels - that does come as a sense of relief, but in our industry working at Level 2-2.5 is still quite prohibitive. Continuing to abide by the three S’s (seated service, social distancing and single servers), means many businesses are still losing money.
