A warm welcome to the Millhouse Community and to other readers.
Firstly, congratulations to the Government for the decisions that have kept New Zealand virtually free from Covid-19. This will hopefully allow us the freedom to enjoy summer living.
However, this has been at a price. Many in the Millhouse community have experienced Covid hardship - unable to share the warmth of social contact, losing employment and income, and experiencing emotional turmoil that has created uncertainty, fear, worry and sleeplessness which insidiously takes a toll on health.
If your Covid experiences continue to traumatize you, please mention this to your family doctor or the medical team, who can enrol you in the Wellness Programme which will assist in health recovery at no personal financial cost. Remember a problem shared is a problem halved.
Please note that masks are now required in the waiting room, and that cheques will no longer be accepted in 2021.
