The Covid-19 team have published updates on both the Contract Tracing and Locations of Interest website pages.

Check in at health.govt.nz and covid19.govt.nz for all your up to date Covid-19 guidance.

And remember:

Protect yourself and others from COVID-19:

Whether you are at home or at work, please protect yourself and others. You can do this by:

  • practicing good hand hygiene — washing hands regularly with soap and water, or cleansing with hand sanitiser
  • scanning QR codes
  • turning on Bluetooth Tracing in the NZ COVID Tracer app
  • coughing or sneezing into a tissue or your elbow and then performing hand hygiene
  • staying at home if you are sick​​.​

Use of face masks or coverings across New Zealand
At Alert Level 1 you are now legally required to wear a face mask or covering on:

  • all public transport;
  • domestic flights throughout New Zealand;
  • long-distance bus and train journeys;
  • ferries (except for the larger Cook Strait ferries) and
  • by taxi and ride-share drivers — while it’s not compulsory for passengers to wear them, we strongly encourage you to.

Thank you, Wairarapa for your support in keeping us Covid-19 free.
