We’re now at Alert Level 4. Stay home. Save lives.

New Zealand Government

Dear concerned citizen,

We must now all stay home. Because that’s how we’ll stop the virus.

Level 4 measures will likely be in place for a number of weeks.

Dear concerned citizen,

We must now all stay home. Because that’s how we’ll stop the virus.

Level 4 measures will likely be in place for a number of weeks.

Don’t worry. During that time you will still be able to access all the essentials you need, including medicine, food, and other home supplies.

ALL THE TIME, NO EXCEPTIONS
It’s incredibly important that we all follow the Level 4 plan, all the time. No exceptions. Because doing so will save lives.

A CHALLENGE FOR EVERYONE
We realise these are big changes. But these are challenging times.
If we don't all stay home, the whole country will need Level 4 restrictions for longer.

SUPPORT OUR EMERGENCY SERVICE PEOPLE
We owe it to the essential services. Our nurses, doctors and everyone else on the frontline. They’re working tirelessly to save lives. We should all do everything in our power to help them do this.
Thank you to each and every person, for doing their bit.

While you’re staying at home:

STAY CONNECTED
• Don’t let physical distance stop you staying connected. Keep in touch with people using video calls, phone calls, chat and texting.
• If you know people who are living alone, vulnerable, or separated from their loved ones, regularly check-in with them.

STAY WELL
• Continue to practice good hygiene – wash your hands with soap. Then dry.
• Cough or sneeze into your elbow.
• Regularly clean surfaces in your home with disinfectant.
• Keep up regular physical exercise, and get some fresh air when possible. It’s good so long as this is solitary, or only with those you live with.

REACH OUT
If you need advice, support or help, try reaching out to friends, family, whānau or workmates.

WE'RE UPDATING INFORMATION CONSTANTLY
For all the latest advice, including answers to your health and financial questions, go to Covid19.govt.nz.

And remember: what you do now, will help protect all of us.

Kia kaha New Zealand.

The Team from Auckland Museum

It takes an extraordinary situation for Auckland Museum to close its doors to the public. However it has happened before.

It takes an extraordinary situation for Auckland Museum to close its doors to the public. However it has happened before.

In 1918, the Spanish Influenza had arrived on New Zealand's shores. In the Auckland Institute and Museum's 1918-1919 Annual Report, there is a very short reference to the epidemic's affect on the Museum:

"The recent epidemic of influenza has greatly affected the attendance at the Museum. In the first place, it necessitated the closing of the Institution from November 3 to December 1, or nearly a full month, and after re-opening it was at least another month before the attendance became normal."

We too, will open again, and while it may take a while to get back to normal, we can get there together.

Let's unite against COVID-19. Kia kaha New Zealand. Stay at home, be calm and be kind. He waka eke noa.

A little challenge for my neighbours...

When I was growing up things were tough for my Mum who had to work as a cleaner to support my brother and I.

When I decided a couple of years ago to find a cleaner myself, it never felt entirely comfortable for me - but at the same time, I also felt happy I could give someone else a little work. 

I heard today that most of my cleaner's customers have cancelled - or she's cancelled out of respect for the alert level. 

So I guess this is a small challenge for my neighbours...

I know our world is changing very fast right now, but if you can afford to, please consider continuing to pay your loyal cleaner / babysitter / gardener etc. Even if it's just a partial payment as a gesture. 

Obviously they won't be able to carry out your service - but maybe when the world is back to normal your house will end up extra sparkly one day or you'll find a new pot plant on your doorstep.

I appreciate this won't be possible for some but those of you doing this already, thanks for spreading kindness.

I'm not sure what we would have done if Mum's income was cut off when we were little.

And hot tip: good cleaners, babysitters and gardeners are all in hot demand on Neighbourly so looking after them now might mean someone else doesn't pinch them from you in the future - ha!

(Ironically I now regularly drive and walk past the beautiful giant house she used to clean on Remuera Road. I reckon they still have a cleaner 😂).

Hi,

My partner and I are in our late 20s/early 30s and healthy. I work from home and my partner was sent home with no work as he usually works in hospitality. That means he is mostly free during the day and we thought to offer if anyone needs or knows anyone who needs in the next 4 weeks for us to do shopping for them and deliver it.
We wish everyone all the best in these uncertain times. Take care everyone
