Media release: Tuesday 31st August
Access to most of Napier City Council facilities and services will remain the same at Alert Level 3, which we move to from 11.59pm tonight.
Redclyffe Transfer Station will be open to the public at Alert Level 3, but will not be accepting any recycling and green waste. There will be some changes implemented to keep users, staff and contractors safe, and to manage the expected demand and quantities of waste. Please be patient as we expect it to be busy.
All parks and reserves are open, except for Dolbel Reserve, and all playgrounds are closed. We have also temporarily closed the basketball hoops at Marine Parade and Anderson Park.
The dechlorinated water stations at Anderson Park and on Marine Parade will remain closed until Alert Level 2.
With the drop to Alert Level 3 there are continuing restrictions on what we can buy however we should all do our best to support local businesses, says Napier Mayor Kirsten Wise.
Taking care of your mental wellbeing is just as important as your physical wellbeing, she adds.
“Staying in touch with family and friends is one of the best things you can do in times like these. There are also trained counsellors you can talk to, day or night, simply by calling or texting 1737. There are also special helplines for rangatahi and tamariki. If you are finding lockdown hard to deal with you don’t have to go through this alone.”
