Northland Locations of Interest

 

In Omicron Phase 3, the Ministry of Health will not publish new locations of interest.

Case investigations will instead be focused on high-risk exposures and Household Contacts

 

You can learn more about daily case numbers and where in the community cases are reported from the "COVID-19 in our Community" page

 

General Guidelines 

  • If someone in your household tests positive, they should tell you.

  • Many people who test positive will complete a self-investigation tool online — this tool may notify you if they said you are a contact.

  • If you are a high-risk contact, contact-tracing teams may get in touch with you. An example of a high-risk contact is someone who visited a hospital or aged care facility.

If you have any symptoms call Healthline on 0800 358 5453 24 hours a day, seven days a week, or talk to your local health provider to see if you need a test.

Using the NZ COVID Tracer app is still important. It is a digital diary of where you have been, and will help you identify who you need to tell if you test positive for COVID-19. Even if your contacts do not have to legally isolate, they should still be given the information so they can make decisions for themselves.

You should also keep your Bluetooth on. Notifications will still be sent out to people who have been near someone with COVID-19.
