Stepping up in a time of crisis is a task Fiordlanders are used to, the region’s community board chairwoman says. In response to the global pandemic, a community Covid response group was set up to provide help to the community of about 2500 people. "We are being really proactive," Fiordland Community board chairwoman Sarah Greaney said —"having a proactive approach gives us a degree of control." The group included local community groups, police, the community board and the Fiordland Medical Centre, she said. Another community initiative was "Meals For Mates", which would provide food to community members in need.
