**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.

10 year old kitty needs a furever home - MONKEY HAS FOUND HER FUREVER HOME. YAY!!

Lee Priday from KittyCat Rehoming Wairarapa

Monkey is a lovely older female kitty who is needing to find a new home. Her owner is very ill and has had to make the difficult decision to relinquish his beloved Monkey.

Her owner is very ill and has had to make the difficult decision to relinquish his beloved Monkey. He took Monkey in about 6 years ago when she was a stray on the streets of Petone. She is approximately 10 years old and healthy.
Monkey is a shy kitty when you first meet her, but once she gets to know you she is affectionate, likes to sit on your lap and sleep on your bed – as well as boxes. In other words she’s your typical kittycat! She is also quite vocal, so if you like to have conversations with your kitty as well as pats, Monkey is your girl. She would be best suited to live in a quiet home, but she is still playful so would like a home where her owner keeps her occupied sometimes with play. She is litterbox trained and likes to live indoors and outdoors. She’s not that keen on other cats so she will need to be the only cat in the household. Monkey hasn’t lived with dogs but she does tolerate quiet, well behaved ones. She is currently living in Masterton.
Monkey is desexed, vaccinated, microchipped and flea/worm treated. Her adoption fee is $120.

If you’re interested in Monkey please call Lee on 021 0843 8935.

What's your experience with pre-fabricated homes?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

The Sunday Star-Times is looking into the rise of transportable/ kit-set/ pre fabricated homes. The upsides are build-efficiency, quality of design, and cost.
