Sylvia Park Shopping Centre crowded with people amid COVID-19 level two eased restrictions – Is this acceptable?

LAST UPDATED:

Video shows Newshub journalist Emma Cropper share video & photos on her phone at the Sylvia Park Shopping Centre, showing a large crowd of hungry driven shoppers walk carelessly like life is normal amid the Coronavirus lockdown level two in New Zealand.

The crowds of people in the mall are not monitored according to the Government COVID-19 Guidelines:

Emma Cropper on Twitter at around lunchtime:
“Were there meant to be limits on the amount of people in a mall? It’s very busy.”

There needs to be more regulation on the Malls & social distancing, just imagine if someone catches the virus from that mall in a couple of weeks time? is the Government going to react with more restrictions?
