Frustration north and south of Auckland at the extension of lockdowns in Northland and Waikato. 

Both regions remain in Level Three until at least Monday night. 

Far North Mayor John Carter told Mike Hosking officials still don't know enough about the two Covid-positive women who travelled around Northland. 

"We've got to be safe, but by God it's frustrating and it's generating a lot of anger and disappointment." 

Hamilton Mayor Paula Southgate told Mike Hosking she also has mixed feelings. 

"Businesses had been running, and the confidence is all swept away by this. Having said that, with two unlinked cases, I do understand the need to be a little cautious."
