Bay of Plenty remains at Covid alert level 1

Auckland is at Alert Level 2. The rest of New Zealand is at Alert Level 1. We ask that everyone continue with the good hygiene and contact tracing practices that have helped contain the spread of COVID-19 so far. for the latest, www.covid19.co.nz

If you have cold or flu-like symptoms, please stay home and call Healthline for free on 0800 358 5453 or your doctor for advice about getting tested. Remember, it is free to get tested.

The school holidays are coming up and everyone can travel, but please be cautious and considerate, particularly if you plan to travel to, from, or through Auckland. 

Stay home and don’t travel if you are sick. Call your doctor or Healthline for advice on getting tested, and get tested if you are asked to.

We ask that everyone continues the good practices that have helped restrict the spread of COVID-19 so far: handwashing, sneezing into your elbow, keeping your distance from people you don’t know, and tracking your movements.

Wearing a face covering helps keep you and others safe. Face coverings are required on public transport within Auckland, and on all inter-regional public transport journeys to, from and through, the Auckland region. This includes flights, and inter-regional buses or trains.

We strongly encourage Aucklanders who leave the region to ‘take their Alert Level with them’ by continuing to avoid gatherings of over 100 people and wearing masks on public transport. For visitors to Auckland, remember that gatherings are restricted to 100 people and you must wear a face covering on public transport.

 

Bay of Plenty is at Covid alert level 1

Auckland remains at a higher alert level than the rest of the country. be aware of this if you are travelling to or through Auckland. For the latest advice, www.covid19.co.nz

At alert level 1:

Stay home if you are sick. Call Healthline or your doctor for advice on getting tested. Get tested if you are asked.
If you have cold or flu-like symptoms, please do not travel. Stay home.
Only Aucklanders are still required to wear a face covering on public transport, but others outside of Auckland are encouraged to do so. Wherever you are, face coverings are encouraged where physical distancing is difficult.
Wash and dry your hands regularly. Cough or sneeze into your elbow.
Keep track of your movements, using the NZ COVID Tracer app if you can. We need everyone to do this at all Alert Levels, not just if there are cases in your area. This is because when a case appears, we need to trace their movements for up to two weeks prior.
