Poll: Will you be joining the Plastic Free July challenge?

Simone Borgstede from Wellington City Council

Today marks the first day of Plastic Free July - a global movement to reduce plastic pollution.
Everyone is encouraged to get involved, even if it's just making a few small changes to your purchases or routine. It's not about a handful of people doing plastic-free perfectly, it's about millions of people around the world doing it imperfectly - and it works!
Will you be joining the challenge this month?

Are passengers wearing masks and social distancing on our public transport?

The Team Reporter from Dominion Post

Morning neighbours,

How was your commute to work this morning? Was your bus, train or ferry emptier? Were passengers wearing masks and social distancing? For those driving into town, was traffic lighter for you? Or did you choose to work from home?

Physical distancing was reintroduced by Metlink on Wednesday, which meant commuters would have to keep 1 metre apart on buses, trains and ferries, and keep a 2m distance at wharfs and stations.

Metlink general manager Scott Gallacher said “there will be no timetable changes under alert level 2 but passengers will be expected to practice personal hygiene and physical distancing measures”.

How have you reacted to the news

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.

How has the shift to level 2 affected you?

The Team Reporter from Dominion Post

Hi neighbours,

The announcement this week that Covid-19 has returned and the resulting shift in alert levels has no doubt disrupted lives again, and affected many of us emotionally and possibly financially.

What impact has the shift to level 2 had on you? Has it impacted your workplace or business? Has it affected your employment? Has it disrupted your plans this week? Have you had to get tested?

Stay safe everyone, and take care of yourselves and others.
