Here in Auckland, New Zealand, we’ve been in lockdown since Tuesday 17th August 2021.
Admittely, this second level of tiered restrictions has added complexity that wasn’t required but it’s mainly to ease the itchiness that Aucklanders started having after being at Level 4 for about 5 weeks.
Currently we can meet one other household (at a time) outside to socialise which is an improvement over no interaction with other bubbles.
I’m about to start a new position as a Senior Site Reliability Engineer with Vend by Lightspeed but before then, I’ve got about 10 days in between where I’m technically unemployed.
August 19th was by birthday so I was going to take some time off but instead I spent it in Level 4 lockdown and self isolating in my bedroom while I waited for a COVID test to come back.
It might be some time before I can travel as I intended to for my birthday but ah well.
