Unintended consequences continue

 Upper Northland has been urgently put back into Level 3 tonight.  Apparently there's a case in Taipa.  (not to mention her indoors was openly heckled in Northland today - was at Rawene Hospital early afternoon, exited to Wellington via Kerikeri)  The L3/L2 split is north-south along the Hokianga Harbour, putting the earlier Mangamuka cases firmly into the lockdown area.

The car ferry runs across the harbour from the northern Kohukohu side to Rawene.  Rawene has the only Four Square which ably serves both sides of the harbour.  Kerikeri's New World or the Countdown 75km away remains in L2.  Kaikohe's New world remains at L2.

The only supermarket now available to upper Northland is the Pak'n'Save 65kms away.  Now as Kaitaia is on the points of interest, it is likely that this only source of food will probably be deep cleaning tonight.  Should it shut, upper Northlanders at L3 will not be able to access L2 areas so will have no other supermarket in the area.

Bet they didn't think of that unintended consequence.

As an aside, I expect to see Hone's vigilantes at the ferry terminal tomorrow.
