Number of positive Covid-19 cases in Queenstown 'not surprising'

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Queenstown News

The Southern District Health Board is not surprised the Queenstown-Lakes region has seen a significant number pf positive Covid-19 tests.

As of Saturday morning, 151 people had tested positive for Covid-19 in the Southern region, which is Waitaki south. The Queenstown-Lakes area leads the way with 59 cases.

"Queenstown is a magnet for international travellers and it is no surprise that it's among the first places to see significant numbers," an SDHB statement says.

Meet our new (furry) friends - Pet Direct!

The Team from

We are so happy to be welcoming an incredible new partner to Neighbourly - joining our long-term friends AMI, Resene and Ryman Healthcare.

Pet Direct are the new kids on the pet block and know the industry inside-out; they have over 350 dog years of animal experience within their team. Most importantly right now, they're still delivering all your essential items during the Covid-19 lockdown.

The Pet Direct team do things differently; firstly they ALL have pets of their own. They also personally hand-pick every product they stock; they have over 5,000 items that have been tried and tested (but mostly eaten). They ship daily, from their Auckland-based warehouse, straight to your doorstep (with free delivery over $29), and offer a best price guarantee.

Neighbours - our pets remain a constant source of love and comfort during unsettling times. So show them (and the team at Pet Direct) how special they are. To say thanks for the support (and for being a good neighbour during this tough time), they're offering you 10% off their already awesome prices. Just use the code NEIGHBOURLY10 at checkout.

Our retail store closed in the COVID-19

Blue Mountain Nurseries

This photo of our Blue Mountain Nurseries team was taken last week to advertise our SALE- it seems a lifetime ago- so much has changed. And yet some things have remained like the pleasure of gardening and being in nature during stressful times.

Our retail store closed in the COVID-19 shutdown just a few days before our eagerly awaited SALE! So for the first time ever, we are running our annual SALE both completely online and in the social isolation of the Hughes family bubble. The Hughes family have been helping people enjoy their garden since 1932 – as a family, we are strong as well as passionate about plants and we will get through this together.

You can now conveniently and safely shop online at our website and your beautiful garden and farm plants ordered from the SALE will be set aside for you until transport options become available.

Getting outside in the fresh air among plants and in the sunshine can soothe the body and mind and lower stress levels. We look forward to offering you a wonderful selection of beautiful plants at sale prices, from gorgeous garden plants, to farm planting selections. Keep safe, and look after one another. Kia Kaha.

Kind regards
Chris Hughes
General Manager Blue Mountain Nurseries
