Don’t even think about driving to the beach or a park for some fresh air once the lockdown starts. That’s the message from police commissioner Mike Bush, who told Newstalk ZB host Chris Lynch that people should only go out in their cars to get essential supplies.
“What happens if somebody wants to go for a drive, say to a local beach or get out and about to a local park?” Lynch asked. “Are they in a position to drive there?”
“There’s a short answer to that – no they’re not,” replied Bush. “You only go out in your vehicle if you need to go and get essential food supplies, essential medical supplies or medical treatment. Otherwise, please stay at home.”
