Celebrate the Small Things 14-8-20

What am I celebrating this week?

So many things!

This week New Zealand had its first cases of community transmission of COVID-19 in over 100 days.  On Tuesday night it was four people in one family, by yesterday there were over 30 cases, all apparently linked to that family.

On Tuesday night, our government announced that Auckland would go into Level 3, and the rest of the country would return to Level 2 for three days.  At the end of those three days, this was extended for another twelve days.

I'm celebrating the fact the whole country is not being locked down and that our government cares so much about keeping the virus out that it is willing to take such swift, strict action to keep us all safe.

It's been a stressful couple of days as we waited to see how far the virus might have spread, so I'm grateful for the daily updates from our leaders.  And at the same time I'm celebrating that life can keep on being as normal as possible here.

What are you celebrating this week?

  1. Take it from someone in the US, having a government that's doing its job and controlling spread is a big thing to celebrate.
