Fast and effective contact tracing helps us to prevent any further spread of COVID-19 in New Zealand.
The NZ COVID Tracer app is our fastest way of responding to the virus — the faster we respond, the faster we stop it.
If you don’t want to use the app, we encourage you to use another method that works for you, like the NZ COVID Tracer booklet.
You can use the NZ COVID Tracer booklet to keep track of where you've been and who you've seen. If you use the booklet, we recommend you still sign contact tracing registers when you visit places like shops.
