All becoming home bodies due to corona virus

🍁All becoming home bodies.🍁

🍁 Stay home this weekend
🍁 Dont go anywhere you don’t have to
🍁 No matter what’s going on its thinking ahead to avoid major strain on our health system. If all the beds are full then what about the usual cases that come through on a weekly basis heart attacks, strokes, accidents etc
🍁 Be mindful of others who are vulnerable & how it will effect the hosp& their staff.
🍁 Staying home isn’t a big deal
🍁 I think it’s more important to be proactive than think fuck I wish we had stayed home a couple of weeks ago.

🍁 We will get through this. Help flatten the curve, look after others, check on your elderly neighbours from a distance. Enjoy home days with your whanau.
