Waikato’s golfers can tee off again from Thursday, after restrictions ease under step 1 of alert level 3.

Golfers can tee off and whitebaiters can get their nets out as Waikato wakes to step 1 of alert level 3 on Thursday.

You can have guests to dinner – provided it’s in the garden and they don’t come use “indoor facilities”.

These are among some step 1 dos and don’ts outlined on the Government’s Unite against Covid-19 website.

Much of Waikato has been in alert level 3 since early October and the Government on Tuesday announced a loosening of restrictions, akin to what’s in place in Auckland.

A number of recreational pursuits are now back on the agenda for Waikato, including golf, hunting, scuba diving, jetskiing and outdoor exercise classes – provided they’re limited to 10 people.

Outdoor social gatherings can now also go ahead, also with a maximum of 10 people.

“You can, for example, invite people from another household over for dinner in your backyard, but they cannot enter your house or use indoor facilities.”

Playdates for children are also an option, provided it is with one other household at a time, is outside, and no-one uses indoor facilities.

Some activities remain out of bounds, with gyms and indoor recreation facilities remaining closed, bach and Air BnB stays and team sports all still prohibited.

The Government has also urged people to maintain social distancing, mask wearing and QR code scanning.

Waikato’s next alert level review will take place on November 1.

Much of the Waikato has been in alert level 3 since early October.
