… the prime minister was really clear on this. Her advice: Act like you have Covid-19. Minimise the time you spend outside your home. That means no going for a leisurely drive or driving to the beach. What if you had an accident or your car broke down? There won’t be a coastguard to get us out of a pickle, so no boating or surfing.
You can go for a walk or a bike ride around your neighbourhood to get some exercise. You can go out to get essentials like food. But stay away from other people. No stopping to chat – even if you are two metres away from each other. Just give a wave and keep moving. Because the virus can live on surfaces for up to three days, don’t take your kids to the playground. Stay at home.
Also don’t go between locations, such as home and bach:
Today is the last day that people can move from their homes to elsewhere, with a Covid-19 national response spokesperson saying those who are planning to self-isolate at their bach need to get there by midnight.
Once there, people will need to stay put until the alert level changes. They can not travel back and forth between their home and their bach.
