Yes, says Screen Auckland, even those places which previously didn't require a permit because they were deemed "low impact". So, as of now, all filming on public space in Auckland requires a permit due to Covid-19 risks. These will be fast-tracked as much as possible, but the new process will ensure guidelines are communicated to those involved in any shoot.
