Appreciation post

The Team from Wellington District Police

Thank you to all our essential service workers working tirelessly to ensure our communities are kept safe.

Issac is 81years old and was observed by a member of the public struggling to walk to the supermarket. A quick interaction with Isaac revealed he was in need of some intervention.

Community Constable Reuben Boniface ?‍♂️ was able to connect Issac with Age Concern Southland and with their assistance provide a care package of cooked meals and loaves of bread to help him through this time ? #kindnessgoesalongway

What moving to level 2 means for the rest of NZ

The Team Reporter from Stuff

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.

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?

For the latest, click here.

Stay safe everyone and take care of each other.

New book showcasing New Zealand's diverse stories released today

Kate Green Reporter from Dominion Post

When a Wellington man set out tell the stories of everyday Kiwis in all their diversity, he found a few that readers might recognise.

Hiding in the pages are some familiar faces, from leader of the opposition Judith Collins, presented only as “Judith”, to Labour MP Willie Jackson.

Author Pete Carter, who was comissioned to write the book by Exisle Publishing​, said it was a perfect representation of how New Zealand worked. “Everyone’s on a first-name basis.”
