Prime Minister Jacinda Arden announced that the country will be reopened with the lowest restriction level. She had earlier announced that most of the restrictions would be lifted under alert level 1. But the borders will not be reopened. 

Jacinda Arden wrote on Instagram“Going through a pile of letters this evening and this one felt perfectly timed. We have a long road to travel yet, but for now, thank you New Zealand. Everyone sacrificed a huge amount so that we could be in the position to lift restrictions today, and announce that we have no active cases of COVID 19 for the first time since February. We aren’t finished, and while COVID is in the world we’ll have to continue our battle against it, but today was a milestone worth marking.”
