Greenhithe pub patrons urged to get Covid-19 test

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Shore Times

Staff and patrons of The Malt pub in Greenhithe are being tested for Covid-19 following a visit from a person who later tested positive for the virus.

Auckland’s Regional Public Health Service has asked those who were at the pub, including staff, between 7.30pm and 10 pm on Friday, October 16, to self-isolate and get a test. A pop-up community testing centre will be available from Thursday.

The Malt patron who was at the pub on Friday is one of two colleagues of an Auckland port worker with Covid-19.

Seed Sharing for Neighbours Day!

The Team from Neighbours Day Aotearoa

We love how creative some people are with their plant giving! This is for goodie bags for a 7 year olds party but we reckon you could borrow this wonderful idea for the Neighbours Day Aotearoa Great Plant Swap!
What a lovely gift to get and it's not just kids who love sunflowers.

ADDED BONUS: if you give your neighbours sunflower seeds you would get to enjoy their beautiful flowers too!

Poll: Do you think scanning should be compulsory at bars and nightclubs?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Hi Auckland neighbours,

A leading coronavirus expert is urging the Government to make scanning mandatory at such potential "super-spreader" venues as bars and nightclubs.

The pleas follow figures revealing daily use of the Covid Tracer app has plummeted to a fifth of its peak.

Last Monday, a total of 515,759 scans were recorded nationwide, down from the high of 2.5 million on September 4.

Epidemiologist Dr Michael Baker said the next six months would be a “very dangerous” time for the country with a high risk of an outbreak while waiting for the vaccine roll-out in April.
