COVID-19 tests are free and widely available
You can get free rapid antigen tests (RATs) from a range of locations, including the usual collection sites, marae and some pharmacies.
Where to get a test
If you are unwell
If you have cold, flu or COVID-19 symptoms, get a test as soon as you start to feel unwell. Doing a test and reporting the result means you can get the help you need as early as possible.

If you are a contact of someone with COVID-19
If you live with a person who has COVID-19 or have spent at least 8 hours with them in the same home, you are a Household Contact. We recommend you do a RAT each day for 5 days.
