New Zealand has a 4-level COVID-19 Alert System. Each Alert Level tells us what measures we need to take.
Advice on international travel and what happens when you arrive back in NZ, and information on travel visas.
Health and wellbeing information including how to access healthcare, mental wellbeing, family and sexual violence prevention and advice for people at risk.
Advice and support for businesses and employees, including what to do if you are experiencing financial distress.
Find guidance on everyday activities — including life at home and going to events.
Find the latest news, legal documents, government helplines, and other resources.
The NZ COVID Tracer app helps you protect yourself, your whānau, and your community by enabling faster contact tracing.
If the virus reappears in the community, keeping track of where you've been will help our health services to quickly trace close contacts and break the chain of transmission.
If you use NZ COVID Tracer, it’s a lot easier for health officials to let you know about any risk of exposure.
The faster we can trace contacts, the faster we can prevent another outbreak of the virus.
If you’re unable to use the app if you can, use whatever method works for you, like the NZ COVID Tracer booklet.
