**UPDATED:** 1.22pm Sunday 28 February

The Prime Minister and the Director-General of Health are currently providing an update to media in the Beehive.

Ardern has confirmed that health authorities have found a possible person to person link for how Case M and N picked up Covid-19. This could eliminate concern that there are other chains of transmission to identify.

Ashley Bloomfield asked people to keep an eye out for atypical symptoms
"This new variant of the virus, the B117, does seem to be presenting with symptoms that are not the typical respiratory symptoms," he said.

If you have muscle aches, do consider this might be a Covid-19 symptom.
_____________________________________________________

Auckland is now at Alert Level 3 and the rest of the country will move to Alert Level 2 until at least 6 March.

Here's what you need to know:
- Case M, the latest Covid-19 case, is a 21-year-old male, the older sibling of a Papatoetoe High School student.
- If you have symptoms of concern, call the NZ Covid-19 Healthline on 0800 358 5453 or call your GP.
- Find your closest Covid-19 testing location on the Healthpoint website
- Essential services such as supermarkets and pharmacies will remain open.
- Customer-facing businesses will need to move to non-contact methods of payment and collection.
- See the full list of guidelines under Alert Level 3 and Alert Level 2
- Keep up-to-date with the latest by following the Stuff live blog

Neighbourly will be updating this message as further information comes to hand.

What's your experience with pre-fabricated homes?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

Running 85km in a race on a rough back-country track is not for the faint-hearted, and requires grit, determination and a lot of courage.
The only place to bail out if you've had enough is at the halfway mark. Local doctor Emily Marfell had a nasty fall just 32km into the race, but pressed on with a nasty gash on her arm and damaged ribs to complete the race. She received a special award in recognition of her effort, and $500 to donate to charity. Read the full story.

Emergency services were called to a burning house on George Street in Blenheim early on Thursday morning.
A Fire and Emergency spokesman said the house was well ablaze when fire crews arrived.
When you’re asleep, you lose your sense of smell. Don’t assume your smoke alarms are working.
It’s important to maintain smoke alarms regularly and check that they’re working.
Fire and Emergency recommends checking your alarm every month.
Press the test button to sound the alarm, and if you cannot reach the button easily, use a broom handle.
They also recommend having an emergency plan, and to practice it regularly. In a fire, you'll only have 1 or 2 minutes to escape your house.
See the full story on the George Street fire in Friday's Marlborough Express.
