Avondale College teacher tests positive for Covid-19

Caroline Williams Reporter from Western Leader

Kia ora neighbours. A teacher at Avondale College has tested positive for Covid-19.

The 25-year-old woman is one of seven in the community who have now tested positive for the virus (as of 1pm on Wednesday - this number is expected to grow).

Principal Lyndy Watkinson told the school community further information would be shared as it was received.

“My thoughts and best wishes are with the staff member concerned, and I thank them for acting responsibly and following all health advice,” she wrote in an email.

It is not yet clear whether the teacher was at school while infectious, however the Auckland Regional Public Health Service said all staff and students (about 2500) were considered close contacts.

Students and staff were now required to remain in self-isolation at home for 14 days.

LOCKDOWN

Linda from Henderson

UNBELIEVABLE!!. When is this ever going to end? Come November 1st, no doubt there will still be ongoing restrictions to our freedom.
What I resent so much, is that those of us who have been vacccinated for months, played the game, did every thing we were meant to, and still we are locked down.
All these Govt. promises that when Auckland reaches 90% vaccination we will have more freedom. What a joke. 89% vacccinated, how can it take until 1st November to vaccinate 1%.
I am so angry at all these months of being dictated to as to how I can live my life. Or not live it, might be more accurate!

Here's a cool idea for communicating with your neighbours without technology or breaching alert level rules...

The Team from Neighbourhood Support New Zealand

Each household gets 3 pieces of coloured paper that can be displayed in a window or on a door that others can easily see.

- Green is for I'm OK

- Yellow is for needing help or a check-in

- Red is for an emergency

This is a safe and simple way let others know how you're doing while also looking out for others in your community.
