Sharing of items between households at this time of lockdown

Pamela from Berhampore

Kia ora everyone
I just heard an interview on Radio NZ with Dr Siouxsie Wiles just after 11am today Tues 24 March. The recommendation was not to share any items between individual household groups of people at this time of being in isolation in order to help contain spread of the Covid 19 virus.

Offering to sharing items or give away things between neighbours might seem a generous thing to do but is really not advisable at this time.

I stress however that I am not an expert. Please listen to the interview online for yourself. Stay safe.

"Always Look on the Bright Side of Life"

Tuesday night was our first online club meeting, "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life". Some of us were a bit young to get the Monty Python reference, but enjoyed the light-hearted spirit of the meeting anyway!

Some parts of the meeting, like evaluating speeches, work a bit differently when you're online - but with some thought and creativity, a good night can be had by all.

We're already looking forward to next time (Tuesday 31 March). As always, we welcome guests - head to newtown.toastmastersclubs.org and get in touch so we can send you the Zoom meeting details.

Stay safe, everyone - see you online!

We’re now at Alert Level 4. Stay home. Save lives.

New Zealand Government

Dear concerned citizen,

We must now all stay home. Because that’s how we’ll stop the virus.

Dear concerned citizen,

We must now all stay home. Because that’s how we’ll stop the virus.

Level 4 measures will likely be in place for a number of weeks.

Don’t worry. During that time you will still be able to access all the essentials you need, including medicine, food, and other home supplies.

ALL THE TIME, NO EXCEPTIONS
It’s incredibly important that we all follow the Level 4 plan, all the time. No exceptions. Because doing so will save lives.

A CHALLENGE FOR EVERYONE
We realise these are big changes. But these are challenging times.
If we don't all stay home, the whole country will need Level 4 restrictions for longer.

SUPPORT OUR EMERGENCY SERVICE PEOPLE
We owe it to the essential services. Our nurses, doctors and everyone else on the frontline. They’re working tirelessly to save lives. We should all do everything in our power to help them do this.
Thank you to each and every person, for doing their bit.

While you’re staying at home:

STAY CONNECTED
• Don’t let physical distance stop you staying connected. Keep in touch with people using video calls, phone calls, chat and texting.
• If you know people who are living alone, vulnerable, or separated from their loved ones, regularly check-in with them.

STAY WELL
• Continue to practice good hygiene – wash your hands with soap. Then dry.
• Cough or sneeze into your elbow.
• Regularly clean surfaces in your home with disinfectant.
• Keep up regular physical exercise, and get some fresh air when possible. It’s good so long as this is solitary, or only with those you live with.

REACH OUT
If you need advice, support or help, try reaching out to friends, family, whānau or workmates.

WE'RE UPDATING INFORMATION CONSTANTLY
For all the latest advice, including answers to your health and financial questions, go to Covid19.govt.nz.

And remember: what you do now, will help protect all of us.

How to flip your perspective and stay happy during your lockdown

Silke from Heart for Art

I've been through a few tough trials in my life and learnt that one of the best ways to get through is to flip your perspective and focus on the benefits of a situation rather than the negatives.

I've been through a few tough trials in my life and learnt that one of the best ways to get through is to flip your perspective and focus on the benefits of a situation rather than the negatives.
With the NZ lockdown there'll be loads of stuff we can't do anymore. But when we 'flip it' there’ll been tonnes of stuff we can now do that wasn’t possible before. Like having time to learn a new skill, (like painting 🎨), catching up on DIY projects, sleep-ins yay, more time with the kids, slow romantic walks (2m from anyone else) with your loved one, etc.

Take a moment to think about it … what are some things you’ll be able to do now?
