Hi neighbours,
We've reached the half-way point in the minimum four weeks of coronavirus level four lockdown.
It's been tough for many, and even though New Zealand's case numbers are looking promising, we all know that restrictions might need to go on even longer.
But these strange times have also brought out the best in some of our communities - and now Stuff is celebrating New Zealand's coronavirus champions.
Every day, we will salute the essential workers, the unsung heroes and the community volunteers who are keeping the country going through the lockdown.
Check out our first one below, Waikato nurse Debra Larsen who has been on the front line of testing during the lockdown.
We also want to hear about the unsung heroes in your communities.
Do you know someone who deserves to be recognised?
Who are the people going above and beyond to help us all pull through?To share stories and photos of your local coronavirus champions, email stuffnation@stuff.co.nz.
