Dogs on leads

Janine Rankin Reporter from Manawatū Standard

Hi neighbours,
Did you catch up with this latest advice from the Palmerston North City Council's emergency operations centre?
"We’re encouraging people to keep their dogs on-leash whenever they are out in public with them – even on parks where dogs are normally allowed off-leash. This is to ensure the dog doesn’t come into contact with anyone but its owner. Please don’t let other people pat or approach your dog when out walking.”
Fair enough?

Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.
