Favourite discoveries on NZ travels

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your discoveries on your recent travels around New Zealand. Were there any small towns, activities or attractions that surprised you, for better or for worse? Did you come across any lesser-know spots you think more Kiwis should check out? Which small towns do you think deserve more visitors than they get? Please remember your comment may be included in an article unless you state that you don't want it to be. Cheers.

Coronavirus: Auckland remaining at alert level 3 until August 26

The Team Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Have you heard the news? Auckland will remain in level 3, while the rest of the country will remain at level 2 until midnight Wednesday, August 26 – an additional 12 days.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the approach is “short, but precautionary”. Extending the restrictions for an additional 12 days is the same length of the virus’ incubation period, director-general of health Dr Ashley Bloomfield said.

😷Now we wait ...😷

Fiona from Henderson

Well, so much news in such a short period and not all of it good.
Wednesday was madness x10 in Auckland; the testing stations were so overwhelmed by the flood of 'need to be tested NOW' people.
From what I heard on Old Fart's FM (Talkback ZB), so many were turned away if they didn't show any symptoms by the Police, the people at the testing stations etc ...
One poor woman who has autoimmune problems and has been unwell for a few days was also turned away, even though her doctor had told her to go and get tested. She had been in the queue for 3+ hours already😥
Well, now this family of four have spread their infected tentacles far and wide across so many companies, and it has transpired that the company my husband works for is now seriously included.
So, off we went and joined the long queue of cars so we could get tested today. We will have to wait for a couple of days for the results.
In the meantime, we may also find ourselves in 14 days self isolation (just waiting for confirmation from the health authorities), all because of this selfish woman who chose to go to work each and every day, knowing that she had sniffles, fever and a cough!!!😠
No one can tell that they didn't know that they were ill with either a cold, the flu, in fact anything. How dare they travel and put so many of our lives at risk!!!
My blood is boiling and I want her and her family arrested for what they have done to so many families and companies now!!!!😠😠😠
The numbers of positives has risen to 19 (at this moment) and the numbers are rising rapidly!!!
