Dunedin bars appeared to be abiding by Alert Level 2 restrictions in their first weekend open since lockdown, with no reported issues in the city.
Police had a noticeable presence throughout the weekend, and alcohol harm prevention teams were on shift in the city, conducting routine patrols in public and speaking with operators of bars to ensure restriction rules were being followed.
A police spokeswoman said there were no major incidents in Dunedin.
Police assistant commissioner Scott Fraser said, in general, police were pleased with the behaviour of people at licensed premises at the weekend.
"Establishments have also largely been receptive to advice and education given in relation to Covid-19 Alert Level 2 restrictions."
Nationally, two premises in Auckland and Counties-Manakau were found not to be complying with restrictions on Saturday night, and were shut down for the evening.
Police would continue with reassurance patrols and visits to many businesses and licensed premises, having a focus on education, he said.
"However, serious or persistent breaches of current restrictions may result in enforcement action."
