    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.

    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

  • 1 Do you Like Working from home? Many people do.

    Survey finds most people enjoy working from home Many New Zealanders have been working at home during lock down levels 3 and 4 - and it seems a lot of us have liked it.   Auckland firm Frog Recruitment has surveyed 1300 workers and managers, about their experiences working at home, and how this experience might change the way we do things in the future. They found more than 70 percent aren't too happy with the idea of returning to the office. Jane Kennelly for Frog Recruitment, tells Morning Report that people were quite stressed setting up their home offices at first, but are now comfortable at home. "These new habits are being formed and, in fact, a high number of respondents are really enjoying being at home and in their home environment.   "It's been a circuit breaker for sure as far as being open and it being acceptable to have flexible work hours." Kennelly is among the many who are working from home and said she also enjoys it. "My commute is now 33 seconds, so I'm very happy to be working from home. "I must confess, and it did come through in the survey, that there is that lovely benefit of being in a shared work environment where you bump into people and you can chat about ideas. That type of interaction isn't happening, and I do miss that. But, otherwise, it's been a very highly productive time." Kennelly said that, once upon a time, people believed that working from home meant less productivity. The lock down has certainly proved otherwise. That productivity also present a problem; people are never leaving their work spaces. "On the one hand, that's fantastic, but on the other hand people really feel quite chained to their desk." She said that the lock down has provided a tremendous experiment in working from home, and she hopes it brings about permanent changes to our work lives. Kennelly said workplaces do need to consider financially helping employees setting up their work spaces. She heard of one person who bought their BBQ inside to use as a desk. "The whole notion of working from a laptop isn't great." She said businesses will save money by having a reduced number of people in their offices and should put that toward making sure home offices are well set up.
