Coronavirus: A breakdown of which shops are open during lockdown

Nicola Brennan-Tupara Reporter from Hamilton Press

Hi neighbours,
All non-essential businesses were required to shut their doors once the coronavirus lockdown came into effect, with only supermarkets and pharmacies among the few still trading.
However, the government has made changes to the essential services list, allowing a number of retailers the opportunity to open their doors and sell select products they deemed essential to life in New Zealand. The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) announced the changes on Tuesday.

Here's a link with an update of which shops will be open for the remainder of lockdown and what you can purchase from them.

Police call for neighbourly calm

Nicola Brennan-Tupara Reporter from Hamilton Press

Hi Neighbours,
The police are urging those with concerns or problems with their neighbours through the lockdown to report them using the 105 number.
The call comes after five people were arrested after a recent neighbourhood brawl in Hamilton street which involved a large group of people, with one showing symptoms of coronavirus.
A knife, shovel, hockey stick and baseball bat were reported to have been used in the fight.
