Protect yourself and others from COVID-19
Simple but effective. These simple steps can slow the spread of the virus — protecting yourself and others.
Stay home if you’re sick
Staying at home if you’re sick is still the best thing you can do to stop any future spread of COVID-19.
Wear a face covering
Face coverings can help reduce the spread of COVID-19 when there are cases of community transmission.
Keep track of where you’ve been
Fast and effective contact tracing is 1 way we can all work together to prevent any further spread of COVID-19 in New Zealand.
Wash your hands
Washing your hands is 1 of the easiest ways to keep yourself safe. Wash often. Use soap. 20 seconds. Then dry. This kills the virus by bursting its protective bubble.
Cough or sneeze into your elbow
It will keep the virus off your hands, so you won’t spread it to other people and make them sick too.
