U3A Takapuna and Covid-19 Level 3
Members will have heard of the Prime Minister’s announcement on Friday that Auckland will continue to be in Covid-19 level 3 until midnight on 30th August. It is to be expected that any reduction in level will be by single steps only; that is, down to level 2 at some stage.
Clearly there is no possibility of a General Meeting on Wednesday 2 September.
Convenors of Study/Interest groups will be in touch with their respective members to indicate either that the August (and possibly September) meetings are being cancelled, or that arrangements to “meet” on Zoom will be set up.
Convenors are aware that face-to-face group meetings at this Level.

We will not be producing a printed version of the September Newsletter and once we know what is happening after 26 August we will publish an E-News update about September activities.

U3A provides many of us with relationships that go beyond mere acquaintance, and lockdown deprives us of the person-to-person element of the friendship we have made. We do, of course, keep in touch by phone and sometimes by email. Some of our members, however, do not enjoy the luxury of modern technology and keeping in contact with them is not possible by this means.
Members without email may be wondering why they have not received their usual printed copy. Please, if you are phoning U3A friends, ask them if they are receiving this E-News and explain the situation to them.

For all of us in lockdown, loneliness can become a problem. Why not consider the “Genafriend” article in the current (August) U3A Newsletter – for yourself or for others you know who may benefit from such a contact?

Technology is going to play an important part in keeping in touch, especially for our older members living alone; so, while we are keen to widen our email connections with members as much as possible, we should also remember the importance of hearing the human voice of a friend.
For more information about life under Level 2.5 please refer to -

taking particular notice about "At-risk people"
People at high risk of severe illness such as older people and those with existing medical conditions are encouraged to stay at home where possible, and take additional precautions when leaving home.
