People not wearing masks on public transport

Neeta from Mount Albert

In this pandemic situation, rules are meant to be followed, for your own safety, and if you are considerate, for others as well. Is it that hard to have some kind of face covering while travelling?

In this pandemic situation, rules are meant to be followed, for your own safety, and if you are considerate, for others as well. Is it that hard to have some kind of face covering while travelling?
On the bus I took home this afternoon- there was a group of 4-5 passengers chatting away loudly, NONE of them had any face coverings on. Every other passenger and the driver had it on. I just got annoyed and moved to a different seat.
Level 2.5 restrictions include mandatory face coverings on public transport, but who will monitor people who flout the rules?
AT staff are unable to do this- so is it up to the passengers to handle the situation, or just get off and take another bus perhaps? What is the immediate practical solution, before we hit a setback on the number of cases?
I might try and contact AT and see what they say, not expecting a prompt response though!

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Community News

A six-month freeze on rent increases is coming to an end on September 25.

The government announced the freeze on 26 March, to aid tenants during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Landlords are expected to act quickly after the freeze ends, with some tenants being served early notices.

Sky Tower to fly white flags for mental health

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Community News

Three white flags will fly from the very top of the Sky Tower this week, to raise awareness about mental health in the construction industry.

SkyCity spokesperson Arron Money said the construction industry has one of the highest rates of suicide in the commercial sector in New Zealand.

“Flying the flags from the top of the Sky Tower is our way of acknowledging the problem and empowering the industry to do something about it. The flags are a visual reminder for workers to stop and have the courage to ask a mate if they are alright,” he said.

Fly the Flag is a campaign created by Mates in Construction - an organisation established to combat the high rate of suicide among construction workers in New Zealand.

As a mark of respect for the families who have lost loved ones to suicide, the Sky Tower will also be lit as large ribbon with colours of orange and gold on September 10 to support World Suicide Prevention Day.

Poll: Do you agree with Domino’s new ‘tip your driver’ feature?

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Community News

Domino’s is under fire after adding a tipping feature to its online ordering system, with critics saying the pizza chain should “pay staff properly” instead of relying on customer generosity.

But Domino's says the system helps keep its workers safe and there is no obligation to tip.

Domino’s is under fire after adding a tipping feature to its online ordering system, with critics saying the pizza chain should “pay staff properly” instead of relying on customer generosity.

But Domino's says the system helps keep its workers safe and there is no obligation to tip.

The new feature gives customers the option to pay a fixed amount or choose their own tip for their “delivery expert” before completing payment.

The move has been met with outrage on social media where some have said Domino’s should “pay staff properly instead”.
