Only those who have been double vaccinated and have a My Vaccine Pass will be able to visit Hutt City Council pools, gyms, libraries, museums, and hubs.
“We recognise that getting vaccinated is a personal choice. However, as with all choices, there can be consequences. At Council we’re not prepared to risk the safety of our staff or the wider community,” chief executive Jo Miller said.
Lower Hutt based twins Mesha Shaw-Wallace and Zahr Shaw-Wallace both received Most Valuable Player Awards at the recent Lower North Island U17 softball tournaments. Both the Hutt Valley girls and boys teams beat Wellington in the final, to claim the title. The 16 year-olds come from a famous softball family. Grandmother Naomi Shaw captained the White Sox to their only world title win and their mother, Kiri, was also a longtime White Sox player. Father Craig Wallace is a former Black Sox and a stalwart of Hutt Valley softball. Zahr attends Silverstream St Pats and Mesha is at Whitby Collegiate.

A basic medical kit should include the following:
Paracetamol, Ibuprofen, a thermometer and re-hydration medicines like Hydralyte. Sore throat treatments such salt gargles, honey, or perhaps a local anesthetic lozenge or spray could also be useful.
Also think about having a plan as to how you get basics like bread and milk if you are isolating. Have you talked to neighbours about how you can help each other?
Again this should not be too hard working out who this trend setter is?
