This week sees us all getting used to living at Alert Level 4. For this to work, we must all stick to the plan.
Stay home. It WILL save lives.
Let’s all remember why we are taking such extreme measures.
Staying home won’t always be easy. But the evidence tells us this is the best way to save the lives of other New Zealanders.
Finding our routines
It will take some time to build up new daily routines. That’s to be expected. We all need to be gentle with ourselves, and accept that things could be difficult for a while as we learn to adjust.
Looking after ourselves and others
Don’t forget to take time to look after yourself, and also to check-in on others. Asking someone how they are feeling is a good way to connect and show that you care.
We all need to stick to the plan
For this to work, and the effort we are all making to be worth it, we all need to stick to the plan, all the time. No exceptions.
Don’t move around
The virus is spread by us. So we all need to avoid moving around as much as possible. If you do go out for exercise or to get essential supplies, stay local. This is incredibly important. Don’t move between different areas.
Thank you for doing your bit
A massive thank you to everyone for working so hard to slow the spread of COVID-19. Together, we can and will save lives.

Kia ora Northland, it's time to dust off that old camera, get out and about and show the rest of your neighbours your favourite, treasured spots in your region. It could be an awesome view, the shy wildlife or even the old buildings that are wanting their stories to be told.
Go ahead, get snapping and illustrate what's beyond your backyard.

"I'm bunking school", he said one day.
"What classes are you missing today?", I asked.
"Art & Graphics mainly!"
"Art?" I said, "You love Art!"
"Frankly, Mum I get more Art done at home and I've got an assessment coming up."
"Why do you get more done at home?", I asked
"Because the teacher always asks me to help everyone else with their Art and I know Photoshop better than the teacher!"...
that was a few years ago...
Now he specialises in front-end web-design, logos, branding & graphics.

It was a sad loss to kaikohe that Wiremu Reihana, our great dentist, moved to Whangarei's Tikipunga.
Now we have to travel to kerikeri, Kaitaia, or as far as Whangarei.
My son's recent trip to a dentist in Kerikeri left him traumatised for being chastised about being 1 minute late, and then instead of a small filling , all he got was an X-ray and a quote of over $6000 for work totally unrequired . When the dentist says "open wider" , does he or she mean your wallet or your mouth ?
Needless to say that dental practice in Kerikeri will be avoided in future.
And if they're not forthcoming with the X ray , they'll be named.
