Every year Te Wiki o te Reo Māori or Māori Language Week provides a great chance for New Zealanders to expand their knowledge and use of Te Reo in everyday life.
A key element of Te Reo in written form is macaron use. Macrons, the horizontal lines above certain vowels to indicate emphasis, can completely change the meaning of a word or sentence.
Luckily it turns out there is an easy way to install the Māori dictionary on your computer and then with a couple of quick keyboard shortcuts, macron use is a breeze.

Just use the following easy steps outlined below:

Māori keyboard and language for Windows
• In Windows 7, 8 and 10, most computers should include the Māori language update. In order to use Māori macrons in Windows, do the following:
• Click the Language Bar in the bottom right of the screen near the clock, then choose 'Language Preferences'
• Click 'Add a language' under the heading 'Preferred Languages'
• Choose 'Te Reo Māori' from the list, and click 'install
• The language for your keyboard will now be set to the New Zealand English and Māori dictionary - just make sure it now says 'MRI' next to the clock
• To create macrons easily, you can hold the ` key (normally the one left of the 1 key) and press the appropriate letter to place the macron (ie: ` and a will give you ā)
• Use the Shift key in the middle of the sequence to make the letter a capital

Māori language and keyboard for Mac
• Click on the Apple logo in the top left and choose 'System Preferences'
• Click 'Language & Region', then choose 'Keyboard Preferences'
• Click the + icon and find Māori in the list
• Optionally, tick Show input menu in menu bar
• To type a macronised vowel on a Mac, you simply hold down Alt / Option and then the vowel. You can also do this in conjunction with the Shift key to type an uppercase vowel.

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

For this Nelson collector, houseplants help her cope with health challenges. "It’s been proven that distraction is a really good pain relief and the plants gave me something to focus on and interrupt the pain pathways.”

There is one new community case of Covid-19 to report on Monday.

The case is a female child who is epidemiologically linked to an existing case associated with the Botany sub-cluster which has been genomically linked to the Auckland cluster.

The child has been in isolation since August 30 due to being a household contact of a confirmed case.

The case of the healthcare worker from the Auckland quarantine facility who was reported yesterday has been genomically sequenced by ESR. The case is genomically linked to three cases that have been in the quarantine facility that are linked to the Auckland cluster. This reinforces exposure at Jet Park being the most likely route of transmission, but the Public Health Unit continues to investigate exactly how the infection occurred.

The healthcare worker has five household contacts, and all have returned a negative test result. As close contacts they will remain in self-isolation for the full 14-day period and will be retested twice.

Nine staff from the quarantine facility have been identified as close contacts, tested, and all have returned a negative result. They will also remain in self-isolation for the full 14-day period and will be retested.

A deep clean of staff areas in the facility was completed yesterday.

Today there are three people in hospital with Covid-19 – one is in isolation on a ward in Auckland City Hospital. Two are in ICU, at North Shore and Waikato hospitals.

With today’s new case and two additional recovered cases, our total number of active cases is 96.

Of those, 39 are imported cases in MIQ facilities, and 57 are community cases.

Our total number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 is now 1,447, which is the number we report to the World Health Organization.

Yesterday our laboratories processed 3,573 tests, bringing the total number of tests completed to date to 868,042.
