Health Minister Chris Hipkins urges Aucklanders to wear face masks

Stacey Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Health Minister Chris Hipkins is telling Aucklanders to wear a face mask as the city heads into an alert level 3 lockdown today.

“My advice to everyone watching this is: ‘Wear one’,” Hipkins told Stuff.

He said the Government was still working on legal issues around making masks compulsory.


A legal order under the new Covid-19 legislation would be issued on Wednesday. This would give legal effect to the alert levels in Auckland and the rest of the country.

Should more schools change the way they teach children to read?

Katy Jones Reporter from The Tasman Leader

A community meeting in Motueka on Wednesday evening is due to feature discussion with a Massey University professor, whose research shows a more phonics-based approach is needed to teaching literacy in schools. Parents lobbying nationwide for the change to "structured literacy", which teaches reading and writing consecutively, say phonics books should replace the "Ready to Read" books most schools use to help children learn to read. Do you agree?
