As the end of Auckland’s lockdown draws near, with 102 days under our belts and couting, Alison Mau reflects via Stuff: “Most Aucklanders will tell you that’s been the hardest bit – the people factor. For business owners missing the faces and the open wallets of their regular customers, and for families and lovers divided by borders and health restrictions… Very soon we’ll be free, blinking like moles in the bright sunlight of a Kiwi summer. Rapid antigen tests have been added to our lexicon and will be available to buy at pharmacies next month.”
