Covid-19: Scanning scarce at some Auckland supermarkets

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Fewer than 10 per cent of shoppers are scanning in at some Auckland supermarkets after another community outbreak of Covid-19 hit the region.

The Ministry of Health had revealed fewer than one in six people who have downloaded the Covid Tracer App are using it daily.

Stuff reporters were outside three different supermarkets in three parts of Auckland on Monday- Ponsonby Countdown, Pak n' Save Lincoln Rd, Henderson and Manukau Pak n' Save.

All up, Stuff reporters saw 81 people sign in at the three supermarkets, out of a total of 432 shoppers.

Do you use the Covid Tracer App?

Why or why not?

For those who don't sign in, is this decision prompted by privacy concerns, or something else?

Would be interested to hear your thoughts.

Favourite summer holiday spots

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your favourite summer holiday spots in NZ. Is there somewhere you keep returning to year after year and, if so, what are the main attractions? What makes it such a stand-out spot? Any tips you may be able to offer on the best things to see and do there - as well as the best places to grab a drink or bite to eat - would be much appreciated. Please put 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you don't want it to appear in a travel article. Thanks again.

Rare white and yellow pōhutukawa trees

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours. Our beautiful red pōhutukawa trees (or New Zealand's Christmas trees) are just about in full bloom.
However, not all pōhutukawa trees are red. Have you seen any yellow or white pōhutukawa trees in your local area? We'd love to see your photos. Feel free to leave a photo in the comments or email me the tree's location at caroline.williams@stuff.co.nz
