What you need to know about masks

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Are you wearing a mask when you leave home?
With so many on the market, it can be confusing as to what is the best bet. Click on Read More to find out more about masks.
Here are some tips on how to get the best use of a mask.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a mask that fits well won’t have any gaps and will prevent air from flowing from the area near your eyes or from the sides of the mask.
“If the mask has a good fit, you will feel warm air come through the front of the mask and may be able to see the mask material move in and out with each breath.”
People with beards can use a mask fitter or brace to help the mask fit tightly over their face.
When wearing a disposable mask, the coloured side – usually blue – goes on the outside, and the edge with a piece of wire, or something similar, in it goes over your nose. The coloured side is water-resistant, while the white side is more absorbent and will suck up droplets and aerosols produced by the wearer.

Pet of the Day: Meet Buckley and Bhodi

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Thanks for the response for photos for Pet of the Day. Stacey Clarke sent us a picture of these two loveable characters.
"I have Buckley and Bhodi who both love pats so much and meeting new people on our walks around Karori. Mostly like being around home and having their besties Millie and Pixie pug over for a play but when we get to the beach it’s sand baths and zoomies."

Remember if you want your pet featured on Neighbourly, email us on yourpet@dompost.co.nz with a recent photo. Please remember to say which suburb you live in.
