Are you wearing a mask when you leave home?
With so many on the market, it can be confusing as to what is the best bet. Click on Read More to find out more about masks.
Here are some tips on how to get the best use of a mask.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a mask that fits well won’t have any gaps and will prevent air from flowing from the area near your eyes or from the sides of the mask.
“If the mask has a good fit, you will feel warm air come through the front of the mask and may be able to see the mask material move in and out with each breath.”
People with beards can use a mask fitter or brace to help the mask fit tightly over their face.
When wearing a disposable mask, the coloured side – usually blue – goes on the outside, and the edge with a piece of wire, or something similar, in it goes over your nose. The coloured side is water-resistant, while the white side is more absorbent and will suck up droplets and aerosols produced by the wearer.

With experts predicting that numbers are about to rise rapidly we all need to be prepared.

A basic medical kit should include the following:
Paracetamol, Ibuprofen, a thermometer and re-hydration medicines like Hydralyte. Sore throat treatments such salt gargles, honey, or perhaps a local anesthetic lozenge or spray could also be useful.

Also think about having a plan as to how you get basics like bread and milk if you are isolating. Have you talked to neighbours about how you can help each other?

These are all attainable goals for most families and most children.

Jumping in now before the madness of return to school or kindy is a great idea.

Let’s have a no-cost initial chat and evaluate what your child’s specific eating challenges are and figure out which of our family-friendly, budget-kind programs is a fit.

Simon Woolf visited the South Island over Christmas and he took this beautiful picture of a kotuku.

"Back in the 1970's I got to know National Forest Service Photographer John Johns. John was a phenomenal photographer, who was both technically and creatively brilliant. John was a true gentleman. He shared his knowledge freely too.
One of his many amazing photos was a Kotuku in flight, however his photo was very different to other Kotuku photos I had seen. It was the white bird against a white sky, and in Black and White. It was a beautiful piece of art and showed The Kotuku, our White Herons features so precisely.
John Johns along with Geoff Moon would be our greatest ever wildlife bird photographers. They largely worked with film, creating images in a darkroom, and shooting with manual lenses, They respected their environment immensely.
This Kotuku photo, taken yesterday, is a tribute to John, and what he taught me all those years ago. I was very fortunate to have John and Geoff, who both passed away some years ago now, as friends and mentors".
