National leader Judith Collins asked PM Jacinda Ardern when she will travel to the city to “see for herself the impact that 71 days of continuous lockdown is having on Aucklanders”, Newshub reports. Ardern confirmed it was something she’s considering, and confirmed the city’s border is not expected to be “long-term”. “It is something we’ve given consideration to,” Ardern said. “One thing I would say is that equally, I would need to make sure that I’m following all the rules in Auckland. Most of the meetings I’d likely engage in I’m doing remotely here.”
