    A number of changes today... ahead of the Easter weekend

    A number of changes today... ahead of the Easter weekend


    Many stores are increasing their contactless payment limit from 80 dollars to 200-dollars.

    It's to stop people being using pin pads, which could spread the virus.

    Meanwhile, the Government is giving people up to six months extra time to renew driver licences, Warrants of Fitness, Certification of Fitness, and some vehicle certifications.

    And Airways is planning to withdraw services from Hawke's Bay, Gisborne, New Plymouth, Rotorua and Invercargill airports -- leaving them as uncontrolled air fields.
