Poll: Covid-19: Do you scan a QR code or sign a sheet when entering a business?

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Happy Tuesday neighbours,

Many people have come forward saying their phone can't scan a QR code and many businesses have gotten rid of sign in sheets, leaving them confused with what they're supposed to do when they enter a business.

Are you one of these people? I'd love to hear from you, please email me at jake.kenny@stuff.co.nz

If you have been to a business that has no QR codes OR sign-in sheet, please also let me know via email or in the comments.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Poll: Covid-19: Do you think taxi, truck and bus drivers should be next in line for the vaccine?

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Hi neighbours,

The transport industry is pushing for its drivers to be next in line for Covid-19 vaccinations after frontline health staff.

Unions and industry groups argue that taxi, truck and bus drivers face greater risk of exposure and should be a high priority in terms of getting a jab.

What do you think?

Poll: Should Christchurch's buses be free to use?

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Two Environment Canterbury councillors are pushing for a two-year trial of free buses in greater Christchurch, but the move is likely to cost ratepayers and taxpayers millions of dollars.

The regional council, which is already proposing a 24.5 per cent rate increase, will vote on Thursday whether to investigate a two-year public transport free-fare trial to start from mid-next year.

ECan councillor John Sunckell​, who requested the vote along with fellow councillor Megan Hands, said ECan had not been “heroic” enough in looking at public transport options within Christchurch.
