    It's FANTASTIC news that we have zero active cases of Covid 19 in beautiful New Zealand.  However we can't afford to let up completely on being vigilant.   As has been seen other countries you can get spikes. Just compare NZ and American graphs of new cases each day. (John Hopkins University) Below - USA daily new cases Below - NZ Daily New Cases There could be people in New Zealand right now who are asymptomatic (Show no symptoms). These people will circulate as per usual and if infectious, will pass it to someone else. Until someone is diagnosed with Covid we won't know. If you feel unwell - sniffles, cough, loss of taste or other symptoms of Covid, stay home and arrange to see your  doc.  Over the Covid Pandemic Lert Info sent hundreds of Lerts, and kept thousands of people safer with much earlier notice on stuff that could ruin their day. If you too, want to know sooner, register for alerts today.

    Some heavy snow falls are expected on the alpine passes this weekend. Current road alerts for snow.( Road Lert Info  )  Arthur's and Porter's passes look likely to close because of the new closing criteria. They will only be open after graded and gritted and can be driven without chains. Chains still need to be carried though. This will reduce incidents of cars getting stuck and needing help which creates delays. This system has been used very successfully on the Lewis Pass.   Road Lert Info sends you real time txt alerts which are often exclusive as we have subscribers that send info only to us. These often reach you sooner than other sources, empowering you to revise your travel plans at an earlier stage.   Milford Sound Road has a planned closure for 6pm Friday 5th

    Today ( Wed June 3 ) sees no new Covid cases for 12 successive days. Dr Ashley Bloomfields Press Conference   This is a testament to the sacrifice we have all made and the hurt that some are going through. When you look at other countries especially Sweden and America, our approach has been better than most. Businesses and employees are hurting in some areas so please support local businesses and help those that may have lost their job. Some people have been stigmatized because they have had Covid 19. That is very unfair and shouldn't happen. The virus is just a virus, it's not like a disease from having partaken in a less desireable activity.   30,000 random tests were performed to identify any A-Symptomatic cases. Only 1 was found and that person is likely to have has contact with overseas travellers, as they worked at Auckland Airport. Move to level 1 will see an almost complete relaxing of contact rules. Stadiums can be FULL however contact tracing will be essential. We only need one case to pop up and multiply to 2 or 3 in a couple of days and we could be back at square 1. www.lert.info
