Auckland businesses are still missing out on a chunk of revenue - they're open, but stuck on the red. 

The traffic light system has seen bars, cafes and restaurants open across the city for the first time in months. 

People are required to use their vaccine passes for these places. 

Hospitality New Zealand Auckland President Jamie Freeman told Tim Dower bars have to wrap things up around 11pm rather than three or four AM. 

“We really need get back to orange or green. As I said before, that late night piece is such a large part of our revenue, being at orange we’re trading at low 40 percent.”
