I'm OK

I just wanted to let my blog friends know that I am OK from the virus. 
There are only 4 cases in Taranaki, the district where I live, and I live quite rural. 
The Prime Minister has shut down all non-essential businesses for 4 weeks starting Wednesday.
I have been self- isolating all this time, which is easy because I am a hermit by nature!

You are all in my prayers. 

This, too, shall pass. (That's not scriptural, but it's fitting!)

It will pass!

Praise God it will pass - in the meantime I am in an urban setting, and relatively close to family - it is hard not being able to hug the grandies!
Stay safe

Glad to hear all is well with you. NZ is coping well with the virus. Just keep your distance and you'll be fine. All the best

It will pass..it is the end of the world ....As We Know It...but many things needed to change.
Nature is giving us a well needed kick in the derrière and we would do well to heed it and change our ways once we are through this.

Stay safe xx

Liebe Betty,
viele Dank für Deinen Besuch in meinem Blog.
Gerne habe ich meinen Post in Deiner Linkparty geteilt.
Ich lebe auf einer großen Deutschen Insel (Insel Rügen), es ist auch sehr ländlich. auf der Insel gibt es aktuell 17 Corona Fälle. Meine Familie und meine Freunde sind alle gesund.
Auch hier sind alle Hotels, Restaurants und Geschäfte geschlossen. Wir genießen den Frühling, die Sonne und das Meer. Wir hoffen, dass wir alle gesund bleiben!
Für Dich auch alle Gute, bleib gesund.
Sonnige Grüße von der Insel Rügen, Mandy

Stay safe and healthy. The partial lock down in our nation has been extended to 28 days until 14 April. Take care.

Keep safe. You have a brilliant Prime Minister. She doesn't dither and just gets on with the job.Glad you don't mind being a hermit. Our daughters say dad has been practicing for this moment for years because he doesn't like travelling any more.

Be safe.. There isn't a lock down here in Florida, but my husband and I both decided to self isolate.. If everyone did this perhaps the virus would stop!

Esperemos que todo vaya bien. En España todos en casa. Saludos.

We've been on lockdown here in Saudi Arabia since before the end of February. My hubby and I decided early on not to take any chances. Fortunately we enjoy each other's company! Wishing you good health and safety.

When I look for leaders in the world, Jacinda Ardern comes first to mind! The view from across the ditch has her looking decisive, strong and compassionate. These attributes are not mutually exclusive. I hope that they have done you well to keep you and your fellow kiwis safe and sound.

As for all the complaints from people unaccustomed to forced quarantine or having to self-isolate, as an immune compromised person, I'm perfectly set up for this as this whole infection control lifestyle has been mine for many years.

My household is well organised and equipped for staying in for weeks at a time (because that's what I do most flu seasons) so it is as easy for me as it is for you to go into hermit mode. :-)

It means we can take the days at our own schedules, and enjoy being homebodies without interruptions! It will do the world good to get a proper rest. Take care and make the most of the opportunity.

Happy belated Easter. I hope you are doing well there. I'm in Connecticut US and our Governor just extended our Lock Down for another month, to something like May 20.
