Essential Services Update
The COVID-19 Alert Level will become Level 4 on Wednesday 25 March at 11:59pm. This means that all businesses will be closed except for essential services and lifeline utilities.
For our industry, essential services means work related to critical infrastructure, or services immediately needed to maintain human health and safety at home/work.
Under this definition we may continue to perform all plumbing, gasfitting and drainlaying work that is associated with ensuring that the other essential services and critical infrastructure can keep operating.
A description of what is an essential service can be found on the Covid-19 website at this link: covid19.govt.nz...
For example, we can continue to provide our plumbing services to businesses associated with fast-moving consumer goods, food production or key public services. You can also carry out work associated with health services or emergency services.
We cannot, however, continue to provide services to businesses that do not appear on that list.
Under the definition we may also continue to provide plumbing services if they are immediately needed to maintain human health and safety at home/work.

Under this definition the services must:
1. Be needed to maintain human health and safety at home/work; and 
2. This need must be immediate.
Examples of the type of work that would come under this definition include:
• The repair/replacement of hot water cylinders that have failed, as the hot water will be required for sanitation purposes.
• The unblocking and repair/replacement of sanitary waste pipes where there is an immediate threat to human health and safety.
• The repair/replacement of water pipes where there is an immediate threat to human health and safety.
• The repair/replacement of gas piping, fittings and appliances where there is an immediate threat to human health and safety.
Examples of things that would not be included in that definition are:
• The repair of minor leaks.
• The replacement of tap washers.
• Routine servicing.
• The replacement of sanitary fixtures that are working.
The emphasis is on essential repairs, not those that can wait for another day and pose no immediate threat to health and safety.
The lockdown is designed to increase our nation’s ability to fight and stamp out the COVID-19 virus. It is important that all of us play our part in respecting the lockdown if the disease is to be defeated.

With everyone staying home, it’s now more important than ever for everyone to be fire-safe. People can find information on our website - fireandemergency.nz...

We’re heading into winter, and with households self-isolating together, there’ll be more cooking at home, and more use of open fires, heaters, and dryers - all things which can increase fire risk.

New Zealanders can be confident that Fire and Emergency is well-prepared and ready to respond to emergencies as usual during the nationwide self- isolation period.

Please call 111 if you have a fire, we will ask you whether anyone at the address is self-isolating or has a confirmed case of COVID-19. Where this is the case, we already have necessary measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety including protective clothing, gloves, masks, safety glasses and mask.

Well now you can - live, in your living room.

The Neighbourly team is super grateful to our friends at Royal New Zealand Ballet for their support over the years - so we're excited to be telling our Neighbourly members about their very special event: Live in your Living Room.

This weekend, grab a cuppa and some gingerbread and venture in to the dark, fantastical realm of Hansel & Gretel. Inspired by the old-fashioned magic of silent movies and music hall vaudeville, this ballet will transport you to a magical world with large-scale cinematic effects, world premiere choreography by Loughlan Prior and a specially commissioned score by Claire Cowan.

Live in your Living Room. This curated series of productions from the RNZB archive will be broadcast weekly on Facebook Premiere.

Enjoy performances at Friday 3 April at 7.30pm; Saturday 4 April at 1.30pm and Sunday 5 April at 10.30am.

Care for your head space during this "lock down"

Raewyn Bell from Northgate Community Services Trust

One of the most important things we can do for ourselves during this "lock-down" is to care for our head space.

Ironically one of the best ways to do this is to get some exercise - at what ever level works for you. A walk or bike-ride is great but that doesn't work for everyone so do some of the exercises you already know about, or there are exercise options on your television and on FaceBook. Give it a go. Make it part of your routine
