Don’t flush wipes, keep workers safe.

Ministry For The Environment

You might be using more wet wipes to keep your home clean, but it’s very important not to flush them afterwards.

They block up the pipes, which then need fixing immediately. When workers have to leave home to fix blocked pipes, they’re at risk of COVID-19. That puts everyone else in their bubble at risk as well.

Do your bit for workers and their whānau, and put your wet wipes in the bin.

Wearing masks

Annie from Remuera

Have just returned from a busy local dairy . I observed for about 20 minutes approximately 30 people coming and going into the dairy .
I was alarmed only 2 people scanned the QR code, and only a handful were wearing masks.
I am unsure if it is a vanity thing not wearing a mask , or people thinking the Covid is not in our area.
Have a reality check everybody , it is the responsibility of all to take this situation very seriously.
