Auckland's Mayor says there's no way the Government is keeping a hard border around the region this summer. 

The Government will make an announcement today about the plan for Covid borders. 

Our newsroom understands Aucklanders will be locked in by the borders for the next month, before travel restrictions are eased in time for Christmas. 

Mayor Phil Goff told Kate Hawkesby a hard border, with checks on every traveller, simply wouldn't work. 

“I can’t see that they can have a hard border, you imagine Boxing Day, 60,000 people travelling south from Auckland, you just couldn’t do it.”
