Two women who have broken New Zealand's Covid-free status are now self-isolating in the Hutt Valley - and it's hoped that won't affect confidence in Wellington.

The two women, one in her 30s and one in her 40s, arrived in Auckland from the UK on June 7, before they were granted an exemption to leave quarantine on June 13 and drive themselves to Wellington following the death of a family member.

The pair tested positive for Covid-19 after arriving in the capital. One of the women has been experiencing symptoms, while the other was symptom-free.

Post Haste- unreliable and rude

Sharnita from Hataitai

Just a heads up- this courier company drove around with my item for a week(load and unload everyday I assume) because they could not get to my house. When I called about it I had the rudest customer service person. She couldn’t help as she didn’t know what was going on. I asked for a call back … View moreJust a heads up- this courier company drove around with my item for a week(load and unload everyday I assume) because they could not get to my house. When I called about it I had the rudest customer service person. She couldn’t help as she didn’t know what was going on. I asked for a call back , that didn’t happen. I asked for the item to be left at front door, it was left inside of fence area next to the road in the rain, and the gate left wide open for anyone wanting to help themselves. Pretty bad service overall.

This song is a favorite at Greta, and there’s nothing like listening to our Tamariki sing this and follow the actions at mat time!

What a special treat today to be able to show the tamariki several kina and have them watch and learn about how to open one and what parts to eat!

Thank you to our wonderful Kaiako Dana for bringing this in and sharing this experience with the Greta Tamariki!
