Prime Minister outlines new categories of permitted travel across alert level 3 Auckland boundary

Brian from New Lynn

From Wednesday, she said people will be able to travel across the Auckland boundary and into a level 2 environment if they are:
==================================================
***relocating permanently, either to move into a new property that they've purchased or rented, to start a new job, or to travel to a tertiary education residence

***if they have shared caregiving arrangements, for instance joint custody of a child

***if they're returning home from alert level 3 to an alert level 2 environment

There are rules.
=============
"If you're leaving Auckland and not returning, you need to get a negative test within 72 hours before your departure. That's the same requirement as those who are already permitted to move across the border," Ardern said.

"For those who are crossing the boundary for shared caregiving arrangements, because this involves more back and forth travel, they'll need to have a test within seven days of each crossing, the same requirement for those moving freight or part of essential work."

All must carry proof of the need to travel and cannot be sick.

Ardern said travel for funerals and tangi will still only be considered on a case-by-case basis, because they are considered risky in terms of potential transmission of COVID-19.

I. Hate. RATS. 🐀

Markus from Green Bay

I had started my first compost last year, but had a feeling it was getting smaller lately. Today there could be no doubt: the heap was really disturbed, and a deep tunnel was visible (see picture).

Today there could be no doubt: the heap was really disturbed, and a deep tunnel was visible (see picture). So I guess rats had tunnelled in from underneath. I googled how to make my compost rodent proof, but of course the wire mesh I would need is not an essential item that Mitre 10 or Bunnings could sell. But maybe anyone has some leftover galvanised wire mesh (holes no bigger than about 1.25 cm, as mice and baby rats can squeeze through anything bigger) from their own rodent proofing, approximately 1.25 m x 1.25 m square?
Thanks
