Disappointment, but no surprise, for Waikato residents facing an extended lockdown. 

Parts of Waikato will stay at Alert Level Three for the next six days subject to a further review on Wednesday. 

It includes the Waitomo, Ōtorohanga, Waipa, Hamilton and Waikato districts including: Te Kuiti, Te Awamutu, Cambridge, Raglan, Ngāruawāhia, Huntly and Te Kauwhata. 

Waikato District Mayor Allan Sanson told Mike Hosking he’s expecting to see some serious carnage in the small business sector.  

“Unfortunately for us, like Auckland, it’s circulating around in a particular sector of our community.”
