Hi Guys

Just be careful because people are going crazy from being in lock down! Actually I've just been talking about this with the microwave, toaster while drinking coffee and all of us agreed that things are getting bad. I didn't mention anything to the washing machine as she puts a different spin on everything. Certainly not to the fridge as he is acting cold and distant. In the end the iron calmed me down as she said everything will be fine, no situation is too pressing. The hoover was very unsympathetic... told me to just suck it up, but the fan was more optimistic and hoped it would all soon blow over!The toilet looked a bit flushed when I asked its opinion and didn't say anything but the door knob told me to get a grip. so the curtains told me to ..yes, you guessed it pull myself together.

Something Positive we could all do

Susie Neighbourly Lead from Havelock North

We (not very far out of Havelock North), have noticed an increasing number of walkers on our roads, and lots with family (bubble) groups. Wouldn't it be great if, when you / we are all out walking, we took some form of receptacle and picked up all the rubbish on the sides of the roads.

Wouldn't that be a great and good thing to do?

If you are worried about contamination, you could wear gloves or use tongs to place in the rubbish container you take.

How is that for a good idea peeps?

We are so happy to be welcoming an incredible new partner to Neighbourly - joining our long-term friends AMI, Resene and Ryman Healthcare.

Pet Direct are the new kids on the pet block and know the industry inside-out; they have over 350 dog years of animal experience within their team. Most importantly right now, they're still delivering all your essential items during the Covid-19 lockdown.

They also personally hand-pick every product they stock; they have over 5,000 items that have been tried and tested (but mostly eaten). They ship daily, from their Auckland-based warehouse, straight to your doorstep (with free delivery over $29), and offer a best price guarantee.

Neighbours - our pets remain a constant source of love and comfort during unsettling times. So show them (and the team at Pet Direct) how special they are. To say thanks for the support (and for being a good neighbour during this tough time), they're offering you 10% off their already awesome prices. Just use the code NEIGHBOURLY10 at checkout.

Teachers have all taken up the task of teaching online, as well as music, dance, tutoring.

There is a world wide “Going on a Bear hunt” as you get some fresh air in your “bubble” you look for bears sitting in people’s windows, as you walk/bike with barely anyone around.

Self-distancing measures are strictly in place.
People must stay in their family "bubble" and not allow visitors, go visiting or be closer than 2m from other people.

Tape on the floors at grocery stores and others to help distance shoppers (2m) from each other.

Limited number of people inside stores, therefore, lineups outside the store doors.

Non-essential stores and businesses mandated closed.

Parks, trails, entire cities locked up.

Entire sports seasons cancelled.

Virtual doctors visits are now mandatory to limit exposure.

Healthcare professionals video conferencing families of patients on their death beds to say final goodbyes since visitation is not possible.

Children's outdoor playgrounds are closed, as are swimming pools and recreation centres.

Shortage of masks, gowns, gloves for our front-line workers.
Shortage of ventilators for the critically ill in countries all around the world, NZ is ok with these at the moment.

Manufacturers, distilleries and other businesses switch their lines to help make visors, masks, hand sanitizer and PPE.

Government has closed the border to all international travel. Domestic travel only if necessary.

Press conferences daily from the Prime Minister, Police Commissioner and Health Officer.

Daily updates on new cases, recoveries, and deaths.

Barely anyone on the roads.

People wearing masks and gloves outside.

Essential service workers are terrified to go to work.
Medical field workers are afraid to go home to their families.

This is the Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic, declared March 11th, 2020.

Why, you ask, do I write this status?
One day it will show up in my memory feed, and it will be a yearly reminder that life is precious and not to take the things we dearly love for granted.
We have so much!
Be thankful. Be grateful.
Be kind to each other - love one another - support everyone.
We are all in this together 🖤

Child care for essential workers

Julie Neighbourly Lead from Havelock North

I’m being asked if I can go back to work next week. Does anyone know if there is any child care for essential workers in Havelock North?

I don’t have anyone to look after my son. He usually comes to work with me, but can’t while the lockdown is on.
