Favourite discoveries on NZ travels

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your discoveries on your recent travels around New Zealand. Were there any small towns, activities or attractions that surprised you, for better or for worse? Did you come across any lesser-know spots you think more Kiwis should check out? Which small towns do you think deserve more visitors than they get? Please remember your comment may be included in an article unless you state that you don't want it to be. Cheers.

Coronavirus: Auckland remaining at alert level 3 until August 26

The Team Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Have you heard the news? Auckland will remain in level 3, while the rest of the country will remain at level 2 until midnight Wednesday, August 26 – an additional 12 days.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the approach is “short, but precautionary”. Extending the restrictions for an additional 12 days is the same length of the virus’ incubation period, director-general of health Dr Ashley Bloomfield said.

Ladies and gents, we need to put a stop to this. Now.

Sure, no one likes a snitch but for God's sake, these selfish idiots are putting our whole way of life at risk for the sake of their own pleasure. It's unbelievable.
I personally wouldn't shed a tear if the NZDF turned up and started cuffing these people with zip ties before carting them away to holding facilities for forced testing. Desperate times often call for desperate measures and this callous disregard for the welfare of fellow Kiwi's is making my skin crawl.

Are you disappointed Pakuranga College was incorrectly connected to a coronavirus case?

Kendall Hutt Reporter from Eastern Courier

Hi neighbours. Pakuranga College principal Michael Williams was “furious” with the Ministry of Health for incorrectly claiming a coronavirus case had been linked to the school in the 1pm presser. Are you disappointed? Do you feel the ministry's apology at 3pm came too late?
