QR COVID Scanning.

Mark from Stonefields

Please can everyone turn on their Bluetooth Covid App and scan the code when out and about. It’s back in our community, this was always going to happen.

Scanning into Sylvia Park the other day I was shouted at by some person that I didn’t need to do that, as there was “no Covid in there”. The stats are about only 13% use the app, my observation is this is correct. People who don’t, where it’s easily accessible are either, far too laid back, lazy, or misinformed. I know for some people they can’t access the code, or use the tech for a variety of very valid reasons but these aren’t the people I observe not scanning in. I have heard that some shops don’t display it in an easy to find or use place, while out and about lately I haven’t found one of these, I presume they exist somewhere.

If it gets back into our community again which is probable it could cost the country $1000,000,000 per day, we need to pull together here to make sure it can be quickly shut down.

For all our sakes to value what we have please scan in and out and turn on your Bluetooth option on the app.

Missing French teen Eloi Rolland: Friends and family still have no answers a year on

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

In 2019, French teenager Eloi Rolland arrived in New Zealand to study. He partied, got a job and made friends. But six months later he disappeared without a trace. A year on, police say “his fate remains unknown” and his case looks set to be referred to the coroner. Caroline Williams reports.

During his time in Auckland, Rolland went to the zoo, enjoyed nights out, worked at a popular bar, dabbled in modelling and, with friends, visited Piha on the rugged west coast.

Before his disappearance, Rolland expressed to his family that he wished to visit Piha again, and on March 6 last year, he did just that.

He has not been seen or heard from since.

“Each day we feel more and more worried and more helpless," his father Thierry Rolland tells Stuff.
