April/May 2020 Update from the National Coordinator

Kia ora everyone.

What a difference a couple of months make. COVID 19 and its restrictions have been a surreal experience. On the upside, I have to say I have actually enjoyed time in my family bubble which consisted of my son and two grandchildren.

In saying that, I know it has been difficult for many, especially those working the front line and those who have lost jobs, businesses and loved ones. Our thoughts are with them.

The Positive Women Inc. office has been closed and will remain so until we reach Alert level 2. All team members have access to their computers and are checking in, so if you need support, advice or just to chat, please send us an email and someone will get back to you.

If looking for information on COVID 19 and people living with HIV, we have some informative links on the Positive Women Inc. website home page. Click here

Due to the current COVID 19 alert restrictions, and with much regret, we have had to cancel the Annual HIV Women’s Seminar and Retreat this year. The event was scheduled for 19-21 June 2020 which is a little way off but we need to be organising now. We have not had many bookings, and flights are largely unscheduled so we had to make the call.

It is highly likely we will also need to cancel the Family Hui scheduled in November but we will wait a little longer before making a call on that.

Take care everyone and stay safe. We look forward to reconnecting on the other side of COVID.
