Vaccination is the best way forward - lets do our bit


Vaccination is the priority - regardless of your opinions on all other issues there seems to be a consensus that vaccination is the best solution to getting out of the Covid19 quandary.
Please get vaccinated if you have not done so, and encourage others to do so. If they choose not to that's their option, but that doesn't mean you can't talk about it and find out if their reluctance is unfounded.
Vaccination is the most effective action you can take, but wearing a mask, scanning in, and socialising outdoors (that's not hard for us anyway) are also important to protect ourselves and others. Covid-19 is not a political issue.

Auckland is at Alert level 3, rest of New Zealand is at Alert level 2


Auckland is Alert level 3, windsurfing allowed.
Rest of New Zealand Alert level 2, windsurfing allowed.

Wear a mask indoors, keep 2m apart where practical/outside your bubble.
If you feel ill, get tested, isolate until you get a result.
Get vaccinated!
Stay in touch with the news, it's a changing situation.
