After living here for over 2 years we've only just visited our local farmer's market for the first time. At the entrance we saw this table with a QR code on it for people to scan, all businesses have this now in their windows so if there are any positive cases in our town they can trace it back to where people have been.

We are now in Summer so we've had some very dry days and humid nights. As of this month those who have been vaccinated will need to scan their vaccination passports if they choose to travel or enter into businesses (except essentials like supermarkets). So far for me the process downloading it online was quite easy but there are bound to be many people out there who don't have internet access so they can phone an 0800 number to get theirs posted out to them. Auckland borders will be opening for Summer and people will be driving around on holiday to different areas so those who aren't vaccinated will be in Covid's firing line except for those travelling by plane which you have to scan your passport for.

I'm attending our farmers markets. They're careful.

I downloaded my vaccination pass with no trouble but on my phone it was blank so in the meantime I have just printed it out from my desktop. Been to a few places now and no problems.

Outdoor markets are a much safer environment than shopping indoors. How do the unvaccintaed get about? If the vaccinated must show certificates, do the rest simply have no rules?

The Original Gypsy Fair has been operating very carefully and to regulations for a while...limited numbers, one entry. One exit...and successfully so far

You sound to be taking a far wiser approach to Covid than in Blighty where many people have become very casual about any protective behaviour. Our hospitals are full of those who have, for whatever reason, declined to be jabbed. Very trying for the hospital workers.

Glad businesses are taken precaution to keep them and others safe.

It's all so familiar.

I like a good farmer's market. We don't have to show our vaccination passport every time we go somewhere. Many people must feel isolated if they don't have a smart phone or the internet.

I got pinged for the first time - I actually can't believe given how much i go out to big events that that was my first one. Even tho I didn't have to, I did a home test before heading to lunch with friends. Just to be safe. I think Australia is making a huge mistake getting rid of the check ins' What's the harm? (And for the people not wanting the govt to know where they are going, your phone already does that - just look at your fb ads!) #ThruMylens

I love the atmosphere as much as the food at the farmer's market!

Weird times.
My "smartphone" cannot go online (long story) - so that throws me out. Sad. And yes. I could switch it. But I´m stubborn.
And... why ever... accepted, LOL.

Ingo got great stuff from the market - the tomatoes were nearly frozen, winter hit!

...this is smart!!!
I'm impressed by how smart NZ is in dealing with the pandemic. Now if only the rest of the world (including the part where I live) could be as good we'd maybe get rid of it for good sometime.
What a fascinating place, thank you for showing me ...

I think it's good that businesses are taking precautions.

Happy Wednesday, Amy.

great to be able to visit the market. And to scan the QR code is a good idea. :)
