Hopes today's announcement on the Covid protection framework will signal when the South Island can move out of Level Two. 

Canterbury Chamber of Commerce CEO Leanne Watson told Kate Hawkesby the south may have no cases of Covid - but that doesn't mean it's not struggling. 

She says businesses and people in general are frustrated that there’s just no recognition. 

“Businesses just want clarity. It will provide that sense of hope and will be a real incentive to people, particularly those who are not vaccinated yet.”
