During this time of COVID-19, it’s important we remember the different signs of stroke and that stroke is always a medical emergency.

One New Zealander every hour experiences stroke. But if you think F.A.S.T. you could save someone’s life and give them the best chance of recovery.

F - Face - Is it drooping on one side?
A - Arm - Is one arm weak?
S - Speech - Is it mixed up, slurred or lost?
T - Take Action - Call 111 immediately.

Think F.A.S.T., act fast, and keep looking out for each other.

Send a Level 3 Love Letter to someone you miss

Stacey Reporter from Stuff

Hi Neighhours,

It's been a tough last few weeks, right? When life gets hard and the world gets scary, it's our loved ones we turn to for support.

Hi Neighhours,

It's been a tough last few weeks, right? When life gets hard and the world gets scary, it's our loved ones we turn to for support.

But this extraordinary coronavirus pandemic is different. Many of us can't see our most special friends and whānau because we want to keep them safe, and we want to get through this as a nation by following social distancing and Covid-19 Alert Level 3 rules.

While thousands of people are returning to work, visiting friends and family outside of your bubble may still be off the cards for some time longer.

Do you have a message for someone you can't see in person? A shout out to a sibling or best friend? A much-loved and missed grandparent? A new baby you need to virtually cuddle?

Level 3 Love Letters is an opportunity to share a video message for a loved one on Stuff.

You can upload your video here so we can share it with them and New Zealand

I have been overcharged and risk being charged a penalty for non payment and cannot get a hold of anyone to talk to. We were sent a wi -fi extender that they have charged us for and do not need. We ordered Broadband the day before lock down and it was finally connected 30/03/20. We have had issues ever since and can not talk to anyone to help or return product. And now they want money for substandard services!
