Covid-19: Concern over number of positive cases on North Shore

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Shore Times

Kia ora neighbours. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is urging North Shore residents to get a Covid-19 test if they are unwell, as concern grows over cases in the area.

“If you are on the North Shore and experiencing any symptoms, even if you have been vaccinated, please do go and get a test."

She added Auckland’s cases were not confined to one part of the region.

“They are across 124 suburbs,” she said, adding that this should pay as a reminder that the Covid-19 restrictions “matter for everyone”.

Driving lessons checklist for parents wanting to teach their son or daughter how to drive

Steve from Albany

After many years of driving instructing I am now offering parents the tools to use to get your son or daughter up to VTNZ test standard, most parents do a great job of teaching them to drive but just need those extra tips to get them up to test standard level. For a nominal fee of $20 I can supply the same checklist PDF and also another PDF about roundabout procedures that I have used with a 95% pass rate, it will be emailed to you along with a follow up phone call. I used to own one of Auckland's top driving schools, semi retired now.

Please Note: I am no longer taking people out in a car now with this covid lurking around, this decision is for the safety of all as sitting close to each other in a car for 1 hour is risky. I have decided to try a new strategy out now so parents can get their son or daughter up to test standard with my years of experience developed in the "Checklist for Driving lessons" that is so easy to follow, it also is what the testing people at VTNZ are looking for.
