I use public transport daily to commute to work. On an average, 25% commuters do not wear masks/coverings.
I spoke to some who don't, over past few days. Their casual response, "sorry I don't have one", "forgot"...
As far as I understand wearing of masks is mandatory on all public transport in Auckland, even at level 1. Exceptions do apply.
However with these excuses, what is the point in majority of commuters following rules, whilst a handful of them, just don't bother.
Is is alright to ask them or just leave them alone and change your seat?
Any other suggestions?
Is this complacency or irresponsible attitude- waiting for another outbreak in community?
Hi Neighbours, Like many, Sir Ian Taylor learned only at the age of 68 about the Polynesian migrations across the Pacific Ocean. He hopes a new education website will inspire especially maori and pasifika kids they have innovation in their DNA. Did you know the stories? Read below:
The Dominion Road Business Association has earned a Purple Flag accreditation, the international endorsement for a safe evening experience.
The accolade has been won under the umbrella of the association with the project funded by Albert-Eden Local Board.
Purple Flag was launched in the United Kingdom in 2009 by the Association of Town and City Management as a robust accreditation with annual assessments.
Today more than 100 destinations across Europe and the United Kingdom share the status.
But the Dominion Rd precinct is the first destination in the southern hemisphere to achieve Purple Flag status.
The accreditation process started in October 2019 and was finished in February 2021.
Dominion Road Business Association Manager Gary Holmes said having Purple Flag accreditation will further help Dominion Road achieve its vision of being a "world within a street".
