Level 3 in Auckland

From Martime NZ via email today;

Some recreational water-based activities prohibited under Alert Levels 3 and 2


13 August 2020

Due to the recent change in COVID Alert Levels in Auckland and the rest of New Zealand, Maritime NZ and Sport New Zealand have updated their advice around recreational water-based activities under Alert Level 3 and Alert Level 2. 
 
For the Auckland Region under Alert Level 3

Until further notice, all recreational water-based activities involving sailing boats, motorised craft or motorised equipment, are not permitted. Scuba diving is also not permitted under Alert Level 3.

Kayaking, canoeing, rowing, surfing, wind surfing and paddle boarding is permitted, however we recommend that the Auckland public undertake these activities within 200 metres from shore. 

Water-based activities that present a level of risk that could result in the need for search and rescue services, are discouraged. Anyone planning any water-based activities should check the conditions and possible changes in conditions before approaching the water.

Anybody taking to the water during Alert Level 3 should assess their competency level against the prevailing water and weather conditions (e.g. high winds, cold water temperature, large waves, or rips) to decide whether they can comfortably handle the conditions. If in doubt, we advise people to stay at home.
 
Remainder of New Zealand outside of Auckland, under Alert Level 2

All recreational water-based activities are permitted as long as it is done in a safe way where physical distancing and official public health guidance is applied.
 
We ask that all recreational water users under Level 3 and 2, keep a record of their travel and wear masks in situations where it is difficult to maintain physical distancing.

Please refer to the Ministry of Transport’s website, Sport New Zealand’s website and Maritime NZ’s website for further information.

Talkback callers to FoxNews Newstalk ZB this morning have been calling to just let the virus run free, and if you die you die. I don't normally listen to that alt-right talkback crapback on ZB, b

Its so easy to be an armchair critic - you don't have to take into account conflicting needs, the reality of balancing health and business and social and other interests.  You just have to blindly and

C'mon AA it was a move of sheer political genius to invent a global pandemic just in time for the election.

Wow, these rumours are really helpful, please keep 'em coming!

i grok the point brother

but if only discussions approved by the 'ministry of truth' are allowed

we've already lost

 "like the other ministries, the name is also apt because it decides what "truth" is in Oceania."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ministries_of_Nineteen_Eighty-Four

The Ministry of Truth is involved with news media, entertainment, the fine arts and educational books. Its purpose is to rewrite history to change the facts to fit Party doctrine for propaganda effect. For example, if Big Brother makes a prediction that turns out to be wrong, the employees of the Ministry of Truth correct the record to make it accurate. This is the "how" of the Ministry of Truth's existence. Within the novel, Orwell elaborates that the deeper reason for its existence, the "why", is to maintain the illusion that the Party is absolute. It cannot ever seem to change its mind (if, for instance, they perform one of their constant changes regarding enemies during war) or make a mistake (firing an official or making a grossly misjudged supply prediction), for that would imply weakness and to maintain power the Party must seem eternally right and strong.

Minitrue plays a role as the news media by changing history, and changing the words in articles about events current and past, so that Big Brother and his government are always seen in a good light and can never do any wrong. The content is more propaganda than actual news.

I’ve got a mate in parliament who reckons it’s a breach of a quarantine facility ...he heard it from a mate who’s a journalist ...who heard it from a mate who’s in construction across the road from the quarantine facility ...who heard it at smoko

The irony with this is that it's probably correct!

in theory

they should know the 'dna signature' of this new community cluster

and if it doesn't match any of the current 'signatures' it's new

but there's so much we don't know

as we rely on non-scientifically trained spin-drs to judge what non-scientific media-pundits are allowed to impart to us in simplistic terms:o(

just trust in THE PARTY, seems to be the message...

from the very top!

Winston Peters has claimed the new Covid-19 cluster is linked to a breach in New Zealand's quarantine system.

"It wasn't an official, I found out from somewhere else, but I think there's been a breach inside our quarantine system.

"I think, when that comes out very shortly, in a matter of maybe less than a day, we'll find out that was the case. But you don't always find out from your officials.

"You don't always find out from the experts. It's something you sort of find out by contact with other people."

if true, they'll know because the signature is the same...

melbourne all over again?

Don't agree Erice, they are relying on the advice of the MOH and other medical professionals. Provided they continue to follow the expert advice, I'm happy. However, I fail to see why they cannot do a multi party comittee to set out a joint advice.

I wont take the word of ANY politician on a medical matter. Employ experts, then do what they say - that is what got us out more quickly than most last time, it will be same again if we do the same again.
