Super Saturday

Ferries cancelled, roads closed as rough weather hits Wellington

Cook Strait ferry crossings and the road to Eastbourne from Point Howard onward is closed until further notice, as huge waves continue to batter the coast of Wellington.

All Bluebridge sailings for the rest of Wednesday, and those on Thursday morning, have been cancelled.

Interislander’s acting executive general manager Peter Mathews said they, too, did not expect to resume sailings until at least tomorrow morning.

“We regret the disruption this is causing to our passengers and freight customers, but safety must be our top priority.”

Vaccinations

Last week, I joined MP Dr. Emily Henderson in visiting some of our local businesses, discussing vaccinations and asking permission to place pro-vaccination posters in their shop windows.

What we discovered was a resilient, positive, future-focused network of business owners and staff, the majority of whom were not only partially or fully vaccinated themselves, but who were proactively urging their business contacts to follow suit. I was impressed with the level of responsibility and personal ownership we experienced in our CBD and wider afield.

Even in the face of rolling lockdowns, reduced customer capacity and supply issues, these business owners and staff were committed to doing everything they could to protect Northlanders from the Delta variant of COVID-19. I felt a surge of pride in our District, knowing that in the face of uncertainty and adversity, we still focus on looking out for each other.

Covid Preparations for Schools Term 4

The government has kept with its cautious approach when responding to COVID-19, and as a result, Auckland will stay at Alert Level 3 for a bit longer.

How we stay safe at Alert Level 3

  • Stay at home as much as possible
  • Keep your bubble small
  • Book your free vaccination
  • Wear a face covering
  • Keep track of where you have been
  • Get a test if you are unwell
  • Maintain good hygiene

The response against COVID has been strong, but the Mahi isn’t yet done. Therefore, attached is some information about vaccinations to support decision-making.

It is now legally required that Schools hold a COVID-19 vaccination register for all eligible students and staff.
