Do you know how coronavirus is spread?

Libby Wilson Reporter from Hamilton Press

The Ministry of Health says the best way to stop it is still washing your hands regularly.

"You might feel safer wearing a mask, and you can do that if you want to, but COVID-19 isn't airborne. It's spread by droplets, which means you're most likely to catch it by touching something with a droplet on it (and then touching your face). If you choose to wear a mask or gloves, you still need to wash your hands carefully and often."

The people who need protective equipment are those working with confirmed and suspected cases of COVID-19, the ministry said. You can find information on protective gear, including how and when to use it, on health.govt.nz/covid-19 |the Ministry of Health website|.

Geoff Booth for Wel Energy Trust

Geoff from Gordonton - Puketaha

Hello,

I would appreciate just 1 of your votes.

I am the Principal of Puketaha school with a masters in Educational Leadership from the University of Waikato.

The last few months has rocked our equilibrium and as a result we have a unique opportunity to ensure that the Wel Energy Trust really delivers on the needs and aspirations of our community. It requires both a strategic approach and strong moral compass to achieve positive, tangible outcomes for our customers and region. I bring experience, Independence and can collaborate with anyone to drive such results in a fair and equitable manner.

Born, raised and educated in Hamilton, this place is home to my family, which includes my wife and two boys (11 and 9).

The many families I interact with daily provide me inspiration and energy to join a board that will be driven to support the Waikato Region's prosperity.

Thank you.
