Your situation will be assessed to identify the best place for you to self-isolate. If you can return to your usual residence safely, you will be asked to return home as quickly as possible. You will not be able to use public transport to get home (e.g. fly or take a bus).

You should not travel to Northland if you are unwell.

  • For non-urgent medical advice, you can call Healthline for FREE, 24/7 on 0800 611 116
  • You can also call your usual GP, if they do telehealth consults or consider returning home to arrange a visit
  • Otherwise these virtual medical services are available for a casual fee:
  • If you run out of medication while you are away, please talk to a local pharmacist
