NZ COVID Tracer app

The NZ COVID Tracer app helps you protect yourself, your whānau, and your community by enabling faster contact tracing.

Be ready — use the app

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.
