New Zealand moves to Level 4 Alert

As you all now know, our New Zealand Government took action and courageously moved us swiftly to Level 4 Alert at 11.59pm Wed 26th March 2020.

We have to commend our Government on being proactive and valuing human life above all else.

We have a little more certainty today and are arming ourselves to starve this virus so it has nowhere left to go.

We will all be ok. We’ve got this if we team together and do our part.  

HELPFUL LINKS ...
