Covid-19 CoronaVirus

New Zealand wide lock down - If NZ is locked down for 14 days, which is highly likely if the Covid-19 Pandemic isn't brought under control before the School holidays, essential services will NOT be effected, and supermarkets won't close.

People/Everybody will be ordered to self isolate for 14 days. I personally hope the NZ government does totally lock down NZ soon because that will be the only way they will bring covid-19 under control. The Country is hurting now. Lock down NZ for 14 days/2 weeks now instead of maybe having no option to order months of lock down later because covid-19 was killing people. I would rather suffer 14 days of self isolation than to possibly have a month or longer in isolation later. That's my opinion. What do you think?

Stupid stockpiling of groceries

Deb from Cambridge

Just back from my usual weekly supermarket shop. The town has gone bonkers!

To all those people frantically stockpiling groceries, do you not realise that it is you who will cause possible future shortages through this behaviour! The world is not ending tomorrow, supply lines are not in danger and stock will continue to appear on the shelves - BUT NOT IF YOU CONTINUE WITH THIS RIDICULOUS PRACTICE.

Removing old posts from Neighbourly

Jane from Putaruru

Did you know that when you sell something, you can hit the three dots at the bottom of the post and choose to "delete". This stops posts as old as 300 plus days remaining, for which I can see no reason.
