Every business in the CBD had parks right outside their doors as in the ‘‘good old days’’— before the tourism boom. Businesses are either closed or closing as they prepare for the official lockdown at midnight tonight. Wanaka Primary School staff met yesterday, in the hall rather than the staff room to allow for one metre of separation. The only staff at school would be the teacher for the class of seven, Ms Bamford and the office manager.
