Stay HOME and save lives this Easter; North leaders urge

Tony & Alison Shrigley Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Northland’s leaders and police are urging would-be holidaymakers not to travel to – or within – Northland for what would have been their traditional Easter break. Police say they will be out in force, to ensure people are sticking to the coronavirus lockdown rules. The Northland Mayoral Forum (pictured) says extra visitors will not only increase the potential of Covid-19 transmission, it will also put pressure on Northland's drinking water resources and healthcare.
If you are looking for fun activities this Easter, there are plenty of fun things to do at home.
