      Aug 12th 2020, 12:00 A person confirmed with COVID-19 travelled from Auckland to Rotorua last weekend and visited a number of public places in Rotorua. “If you were at one of these places at these dates and times there is a small possibility that you may have been exposed, and so you are considered to be a casual contact. It is advised that you self-isolate and get tested for COVID-19,” says Dr Neil de Wet, Medical Officer of Health for Toi Te Ora Public Health. “You can come out of self-isolation when you have a negative test but you should remain vigilant for any symptoms. If at any later stage you have symptoms that may be COVID-19 you must immediately self-isolate and get tested,” says Dr de Wet. Places visited in Rotorua Date and approximate time Wai Ora Lakeside Hotel Saturday 8th Aug from 3:30pm until Tuesday 11th Aug at 9am Herbs & Spices Thai Restaurant Saturday 8th Aug, 8:00pm-9pm Fat Dog Café Sunday 9th Aug, 1:30pm-2:30pm Pak’nSave Rotorua Sunday 9th Aug, 2:30pm- 3:00pm Rotorua Heritage Farm 3D Art Gallery Monday 10th Aug, 3:00pm – 4.30pm Skyline Rotorua Sunday 9th Aug, 4:00pm - 5:50pm Burger Fuel Redwood Centre Monday 10th Aug, 7pm-7:30pm Don Kebab Monday 10th Aug, 7pm-7:30pm There are currently no other known possible exposure events of concern in Rotorua but this list will be updated if any others are confirmed. Public health teams are also following up a boat cruise in Taupō – those on the boat cruise who may be contacts are being followed up directly. “From the information we have currently, we are not aware of any other possible exposures of concern in Taupō,” says Dr de Wet. It can take from 1 to 14 days after exposure to COVID-19 to start developing symptoms, so anyone who visited these places at these times should remain vigilant for the symptoms of COVID-19 for two weeks from when they may have been exposed. The symptoms of COVID-19 may include a cough, a fever, shortness of breath, a sore throat, runny nose and temporary loss of smell.   www.lert.info for news and alerts.

    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.

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

    0.00 of 0 votes

    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.
