Hi neighbours,

On Tuesday night, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced there were four new Covid-19 cases in the community.

Auckland moved into level 3 at midday on Wednesday, and the rest of the country into level 2.

Kiwis outside of Auckland can still continue to go to work and school, with physical distancing, and are advised to wear masks in public.

Businesses can open to the public if they are following public health guidance, which includes physical distancing and record keeping.

In terms of gatherings, New Zealanders must not travel to events with more than 100 people. This includes weddings, birthdays, funerals and tangihanga.

The Government advises all Kiwis to practise good hygiene and stay home if sick.

Hi neighbours

The discovery of four Covid-19 cases outside of managed isolation on Tuesday has ended New Zealand's 102 day streak without community transmission. As a result, Auckland has returned to level 3, while the rest of New Zealand step back to level 2.

For those of us outside of Auckland, it means maintaining physical distancing of 2 metres, no more than 100 people at gatherings, and considering working from home if possible.

How have you reacted to the news? Are you now working from home? Are you wearing a face mask when you leave the house? And be honest, have you panic-bought toilet paper?

Stay safe everyone and take care of each other.
