How to spend our first weekend at Alert Level 4

New Zealand Government

This is a crucial time. You might be tempted to leave the house this weekend to enjoy your free time. But it’s incredibly important that you don’t revert back to ‘normal life’.

This is a crucial time. You might be tempted to leave the house this weekend to enjoy your free time. But it’s incredibly important that you don’t revert back to ‘normal life’.

Remember why we are all taking these extreme measures. Stay home. Save lives. This breaks the chain and stops the virus spreading.

How to break the chain, and protect us all:

STOP THE MOVEMENT
The virus is spread by us. It can’t move by itself. So we all need to avoid moving around as much as possible, eg:
● don't travel to and from baches or second homes
● avoid driving out of your neighbourhood
● don't travel across the country in campervans
● note that DOC has closed all of its campsites and huts.

KEEP EXERCISE LOCAL
There are very few exceptions to staying home, but exercise is one of them. Going for a walk, run or bike ride is good for your mental health. Just remember to:
● stay close to home. Enjoy your neighbourhood, but go no further
● keep it solitary, or only with those you live with
● keep a 2 metre distance from others.

DO SAFE ACTIVITIES ONLY
● Our emergency services need to be fully available to respond to COVID-19 cases. Any search and rescue operation reduces the ability of first responders to help others.
● Do your bit to help them by only undertaking safe activities, and avoiding going into areas where you could get lost or hurt and require their help. Avoid outdoor activities like swimming, surfing, tramping, or boating, hunting or hiking.

AVOID PUBLIC SPACES
● All bars, restaurants, cafes, gyms, cinemas, pools, museums, libraries and playgrounds are closed.
● Avoid places like beaches where people commonly linger, or are unable to maintain a 2 metre distance.
● Don't touch surfaces others may have touched when outdoors, like park benches or playgrounds.

When you return home carefully wash your hands, and any items you took with you outdoors.

timestamp 7:07 - *THIS VIRUS IS *WEAK* - ***SOAP KILLS IT*** - PLEASE SHARE THIS MESSAGE - PLEASE THANK YOU

normal SOAP is much better than alcohol based hand sanitizer (which must be 60% or higher to be effective...) - this from THIS expert

Dr Rohin Francis BSc (Hons), MBBS, MRCP as he says a LOT OF MISINFORMATION OUT THERE - as medical professional he is doing best (along with others, their links here too) to correct misinformation

as he explains - not only is he a medical doctor - and surgeon - "cardiologist, internal medicine doctor & university research"

- he also KNOWS PEOPLE - OTHER EXPERTS - in UK - in USA - *WHO ARE AT THE FRONT LINE DEALING WITH COVID-19*

(EXPERTS on COVID-19 at CDC in USA - UK Emergency Response team dealing with COVID-19 etc) - so this video incorporates their knowledge and expertise as well
