The six cases of Covid-19 in Stratford reported last night – five of which will be added to tomorrow’s total – have sparked a renewed push for people there to get tested and vaccinated.

Iwi in the Far North are disappointed by the government’s decision to move Northland down to alert level 2 overnight despite seven new cases there being announced yesterday.

Teachers could be fined if they try to turn up to class next week without being vaccinated.

And hospitals are making final efforts to see whether unvaccinated workers will change their mind before they have to be stood down from their jobs next week.
