  • Hard News: The company of strangers,

    We flew Auckland to Wellington on 22 March. We had gone up for the weekend to see the last of the pop-up Globe, but it closed down as we arrived. It was weird being a tourist while NZ started to withdraw from the world. The hotel was about to be taken over for managed isolation for plane loads of returnees. We heard Jacinda's big announcement of the new Pandemic Levels in the car on the way to have a look at Matakana which was as busy as ever, but with lots of handsanitiser. The first Marist cluster infection was in the news.

    On the plane home there was some worrying coughing down the back. A couple in front of us wearing masks and gloves was travelling home from overseas, but we still had to get close unloading luggage from the overseas locker and queuing. For several days we checked Ministry of Health reports of new infections and the planes they had travelled on and hoped ours wasn't on the list.

    It was the anxiety and fear of that time I will remember. Who would be next to test positive and who might die?

  • Access: Bubble of One, in reply to Chelle Hope,

    A couple of immunocompromised people in this bubble so very happy with the firm leadership of Jacinda, Ashley, Grant and all. Also lucky to have a skilled shopper. A month ago we were seriously worried about people we knew catching Covid, a threat which has now receded somewhat (thankfully).

    Thanks again for writing this, Chelle. Must have taken a lot of energy to produce such an authentic reflection on this moment in place and time.
