Those QR codes

David from Glen Eden

I've not seen a QR code displayed in a shop yet. We are asked to photo the QR code wherever we visit and all the shops and businesses are asked to diplay one. We should download the covid-19 tracer app to allow recording where we've been. I was surprised when I was asked "what's a QR code". See the picture example. That is what you need to point your camera at to use the app you will have installed. We should use it. Our cavalier attitude to covid-19 is not appropriate, it's inviting trouble. If just one infected person gets around it will be extremely useful for tracing where that person was a week or two ago and when they can't remember and who else may have been there the same time. Photographing the QR code gives our professional tracer teams the info they need only when they need it. Well, that's how I understand it and I will use it. Shops and businesses, please register a valid QR code and display it in prominent places for us to use. It takes seconds.

(Note, the example is not a valid code! It just looks like one)

Generation Pandemic: How has Covid-19 affected your children?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

This week we're looking at how the pandemic will affect our children and their resilience. The Sunday Star-Times wants to hear from children about how they've been impacted by Covid-19 and lockdown. Perhaps they've learned more about hand washing and germs, or maybe they want to talk about having mum or dad home more often, or learning from home. Kids can write a sentence or two to be included in print by emailing kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz, by Friday, July 10, at 5pm. Their first names and ages may be used in print. Parents, if you're happy for your children to be photographed please let us know.

'Carless' apartments looking for tenants

Colleen Hawkes Reporter from Homed

This is the changing face of housing in our suburbs as determined by Auckland's Unitary Plan. But this pioneering project in Sandringham is for renters, not buyers.
