    Jennifer, what does lockdown mean in your area? I know your area has done a really great job suppressing spread, so I'm curious how case surges are handled. We've never been on "full lock down" but I've been WFH for about a year.

    @SeattleSheri easiest way to explain it is we have 4 alert levels. Level 4 is total shutdown except for essential services, Level 3 is basically essential services and non contact retail plus work/study from home if possible with limited to no travel outside of areas, level 2 is mainly social distancing and contact tracing and level 1 is essentially “normal”.

    @SeattleSheri Last night the whole country was put into level 2 for 72 hours except for the region I live in which is level 3. The current situation only affects me in a major way job search wise as all of my job search is focussed on where it’s level 2 (it’s too expensive to live on my own where I live so I’ve made the choice long ago to not look in my local region) so I can’t actually travel at the moment

    @SeattleSheri we also have Managed isolation and quarantine facilities where I believe everyone coming in to NZ and/or has a positive test has to isolate for 14 days. Really helps we have a very on to it prime minister (president), rigorous border testing plus our borders are 95% closed and we are essentially an island nation which helps.
