We've had 102 cases, nearly all returning from overseas with it. We haven't had any deaths from it yet, and hopefully that continues. Being on lock-down, provided people don't ignore it, is a great way to prevent the spread. If you don't go out you can't get it, and if you have it, you can't spread it to others.

New Zealand's alert level has gone from 2, today, to 3, and on Wednesday to 4, which is the highest. From Wednesday we are on lock-down except for groceries/medical/pharmacies and essential workers (Rest Homes, Police, Fire Brigade, etc.) We now have 102 cases and a couple are confirmed community infection rather than like the all the rest - bringing it back to NZ with them.

My life is unchanged at this point. I live by myself and only normally go out to get my groceries and perhaps do a couple other things that need to be done the same day, once a week. I don't have to try to create a good supply in case of quarantine because I have always practiced that for a rainy day, anyway. It has the added benefit of saving money.

In NZ we don't tip, however the government has removed the stand-down period for getting a benefit if anyone is laid off work because of the restrictions.

When the CEO sent word that employees would be working from home, I bought snacks from our company cafe. Other employees mentioned that they left bigger tips at the food trucks. It was our small way of letting them know we appreciated everything they did to make sure we have a good meal at work.

I will be leaving bigger tips at any restaurant or cafe I go to over the next couple of weeks. Longer if needed. It's just to let those employees know, I do appreciate that they doing what they can in an impossible situation.

I am also going out and doing my business albeit with my homemade sanitizer. I am just trying to be nice to everyone - smile and than the cashier/stock person/bagger; hold a door for someone; smile at strangers. Also I have given positive feedback at several of my usual stores to let them know I appreciate their efforts

The COVID-19 is making it's presence known around the world. Lots of businesses are temporarily closing down.

My question i: What steps are you taking to stay positive and support your local businesses?

I intentionally went out and bought new running shoes a little before I needed them. The store I use is a small, locally owned place with 2 locations here in MN. I had 2 larger races cancelled; they are sending us participants our shirts and medals and I will earn the medals. I signed up for a small (less than 250 people) 7k.
