basic physics, if you have a mask on you cannot spread your spit to others. Your mask might not save you from a person spitting virus at you though.
I am all for anything that slows down the spread.No big deal to put on your mask for certain times

People wear their masks down here in Dunedin especially out my way in Mosgiel and especially in South Dunedin where I happen to go a lot when I need to go there. So you see people with masks all the time. No one complains.

Maybe. Most masks I see are those most basic ones with blue on one side , white on the other. Taken out of the pocket and worn. I use the same sort. Like wearing trainers to climb Mt Ruapehu. What about the fashion of having the nose uncovered ?

COVID-19 deaths​

Today we are sadly reporting the deaths of 32 people with COVID-19. The total number of deaths is up by 31 from yesterday as we have removed a case which had been previous reported twice. This case was initially reported on 10 March.

The deaths being reported today include people who have died over the previous six weeks, since 5 April.

These deaths take the total number of publicly reported deaths with COVID-19 to 1,017 and the 7-day rolling average of reported deaths is 17.

Of the people whose deaths we are reporting today; two people were from Northland; nine from the Auckland region; two from Bay of Plenty; two from Taranaki; one from Tairawhiti; four from MidCentral; two from Hawke’s Bay; three from the Wellington region; one from Nelson-Marlborough; four from Canterbury and two from Southern.

One person was in their 20s; four people were in their 40s; two in their 50s; four in their sixties; nine in their 70s; nine in their 80s and three were aged over 90.

Of these people, ten were women and twenty-two were men.

This is a very sad time for whānau and friends and our thoughts and condolences are with them at this time.

Out of respect, we will be making no further comment on these deaths.

We have today published an update on the reporting of COVID-19 deaths, which includes a breakdown of people who have died with COVID-19 as an underlying cause of death and those who have died with COVID-19 as a contributing cause of death.

Positive RAT for me today. Wicked sore throat last night, gave me trouble sleeping. Today I feel like a cold is coming on, not too bad other than the throat really.

I've been working in hospo, and pretty much always wear a mask, even though customers try tell me that I don't have to. :rolleyes: I think the masks have been working because only 3 at my work (including me) had not had it yet, and two of us are always wearing masks. The other is less into it but does wear one to serve, and also goes hard on high strength Vitamin C. The others who had mask exemptions or just don't wear them have all had it already.

I went to a small gig on Saturday night, went in with a mask on but had beers in my hand the entire time so would have been a nuisance to keep the mask on throughout. A colleagues son had tested positive early this week too, so I'm not sure where I picked it up from. I was beginning to think maybe I had already had it without knowing.
