How contact tracing works
Information on contact tracing, how to support contact tracing if you test positive, and getting alerts from the NZ COVID Tracer app.
You are a Household Contact if you live with, or spend a night with, someone who has COVID-19. We recommend you test daily for 5 days with a rapid antigen test.
You are a Close Contact if you had contact with someone with COVID-19 when they were infectious. Close Contacts do not need to isolate.
How to use the contact tracing form
If you test positive for COVID-19 you will get a text message with a link to the online contact tracing form. It lets you share details of where you have been and if you need support.
