How have you reacted to the news Covid has returned?

The Team Reporter from Dominion Post

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.

Leave your car at home and use your feet

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Next Tuesday is World Car Free Day and the council is encouraging Wellingtonians to leave their car at home.

Local schools will also be encouraging students to walk, cycle or scooter.
Workers will be encouraged take a bus or a train, or even walk, rather than their car. Have your ever thought what your neighborhood would be like if there were fewer cars?

Our first State House

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

David and Mary McGregor took occupation of the first State House in New Zealand today (September18) in 1937.

The house at 12 Fife Lane Miramar had three bedrooms and one bathroom. The opening attracted a large crowd and a lot of media attention. The house was eventually sold to the McGregors in the early 1950s. They lived there until the early 1980s and are seen in the attached photo in 1978.
