Lockdown Level 4

After more than 5 months of no cases of Covid-19 in the community, New Zealand has discovered a case in Auckland. As a result, the entire country goes into Level 4 lockdown as of 11.59pm tonight (Tuesday 17/8/21). For the Auckland and Coromandel regions, this will be for a period of 7 days. For the rest of the country, it will be reviewed after an initial period of 3 days. We are now arguably the most successful country in the world at dealing with the pandemic and successfully eradicated it 'in the wild'. It makes me proud that with even just 1 case the team of 5 million pulls together to do what's needed and the approach of 'Going hard and going early' by Prime Minister Jacinda and the Government has proven to work every time. 

This is just another one of those times, so time to play 'Go home - Stay home' again unless we are essential workers. If you can work from home, you must. If you can't, you get to have a break...at home. If you are unsure of what you can and can't do at Level 4, check the official word here, and yes, Groove FM will be broadcasting from our homes too.

For the full details on the NZ Covid-19 situation, see the government website.
