Mayor Phil Goff today announced the temporary closure of libraries and a number of cultural institutions across the city.

The Museum’s Chief Executive Dr David Gaimster said “Auckland Museum is aligned with the Auckland Councils efforts to limit the transmission of the COVID -19 coronavirus. We will close our doors today at 5pm and will review our position regularly as new information from Health Officials comes to hand.”

“This was not an easy decision,” says Gaimster. “Auckland Museum has a role in the community to provide a sense of trust and continuity in times of uncertainty. However for the health and wellbeing for our visitors, our people and communities it has been necessary to make this difficult decision.”

The Museum will continue to operate behind the scenes undertaking the full range of its non-public facing activities such as caring for collections and taonga, research, digital and online initiatives, preparation of exhibitions and development of public programmes, planning and conservation.

Dr. Gaimster says while the Museum building is closed, it can still be visited online.

“Stay in touch with us at aucklandmuseum.com and we’ll keep you informed. Connect with us on our social media channels where we will bring you inspiring stories of our Museum, its collections and people,” he says.

“We don’t know yet when we will be able to re-open our doors, but we look forward to welcoming visitors back when we can,” says Dr. Gaimster.

Coronavirus: What you should prepare in case you need to self-isolate

Brian from New Lynn

The Government recently asked New Zealanders to prepare for this situation. But how do you prepare for staying at home for a two-week period? Kiwis have been told not to bulk buy, and some won’t be able to afford to buy two weeks’ worth of supplies at once, but gradually adding extra items to … View moreThe Government recently asked New Zealanders to prepare for this situation. But how do you prepare for staying at home for a two-week period? Kiwis have been told not to bulk buy, and some won’t be able to afford to buy two weeks’ worth of supplies at once, but gradually adding extra items to your grocery list can build up your stock. According to New Zealand Civil Defence, during a pandemic or a prolonged emergency you will need a two-week stock of food and water.
Here is a list of food items that can easily be stored for two weeks:
======================================================
Ready-to-eat canned meats, fruits, and vegetables.
Canned juice, milk, and soup.
High-energy foods such as peanut butter, jam, salt-free crackers and energy bars.
Trail mix (pre-packaged or homemade).
Comfort foods such as hard sweets, sweetened cereals, snack bars, and biscuits.
Instant coffee, tea bags.
Compressed food bars. They store well, are lightweight, taste good, and are nutritious.
Dried foods. They can be nutritious and satisfying, but may contain a lot of salt, which promotes thirst. If salt is a problem, used dried fruit, like raisins.
Freeze-dried foods. They are tasty and lightweight.
Whole-grain cereals (oatmeal, whole-wheat, multi-grain).
Instant meals. Cups of noodles or cups of soup are a good addition.
Snack-sized canned goods, which generally have pull-top lids or twist-open keys.
Pre-packaged beverages. Those in foil packets and foil-lined boxes are sealed and will keep for a long time if the seal is not broken.
=====================================================
Other items that you may need to consider depending on your personal circumstances are:
=====================================================
Medications – you should check with your chemist about storage requirements for any medications your taking. Pain relievers and contact lenses and solutions are other medical supplies you may need.
Items for young children, including nappies, bottles, dummies, powdered milk and formula.
Detergent, feminine supplies, shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, comb and brush, lip balm, sunscreen, heavy-duty plastic garbage bags and ties, medium-sized plastic bucket with tight lid, disinfectant, household chlorine bleach.
Sanitation and hygiene items: toilet paper, towelettes, soap, hand sanitiser liquid.
First aid kit for common injuries.
==============================
Look after your mental health as well
==============================
Two weeks of staying home can seem like a long time for people and looking after your mental health is also important.

Civil Defence suggests making sure you also think about ways you can entertain yourself with books and other forms of entertainment and ways to occupy your children.

You can find more information on preparing for self-quarantine here from Civil Defence here.

If you are returning to New Zealand from overseas or don’t have a stock at home and have suddenly been required to self-quarantine you can order any item you need online. Family or friends can also drop supplies at your door.

Know Your Dentures

An affordable option to give you that Hollywood smile you’ve always dreamed of, giving you a major boost in your confidence and self-esteem. Here Dentic Denture Clinic aim to answer a few commonly asked questions to help you understand more about dentures.

1) When should I replace my dentures?
Over the time, you may find your dentures become loose and ill-fitting as your gum resorbs and shrinks. Difficulty in chewing and frequently experiencing tired and sore gum are symptoms that indicate your denture is due for a replacement.

2) I plan to have teeth removed but don’t want to seen without teeth, what should I do?
Immediate dentures are made prior to teeth removal so that on the day of your extractions your missing teeth can be instantly replaced with a denture.

3) I have a few missing teeth, I’m not sure if I need dentures?
A common misconception is that you need to lose all your teeth before getting dentures. However, there are types of dentures that only replace a few missing teeth too.

4) I recently broke/ lost my dentures, do you provide quotes?
Dentic Denture Clinic offers same-day repairs. However, if your dentures cannot be repaired, Dentic provide free Work and Income (WINZ) and insurance quote at no obligation

To inquire, please contact Dentic Denture Clinic at 09 948 2202 or visit the clinic at 201 Taylor Street, Blockhouse Bay, Auckland for a free consultation with no obligation.

What are you waiting for, it’s time to smile.
