Who is a Casual Contact
You are considered a Casual Contact if you have been at a location of interest at the same time as someone infectious with COVID-19. But you may not have been near the person. Casual Contacts are at lower risk of getting sick with COVID-19.
How you will be notified
You may receive a yellow QR notification for a location of interest in the NZ COVID Tracer app. The notification will give you advice about what to do and a link for more information.
You can check locations of interest on the Ministry of Health website:
If you live with a Casual Contact
You do not need to do anything if you live with someone who is a Casual Contact. This applies to both fully vaccinated and not fully vaccinated people.
There’s financial support for people who need to stay at home due to COVID-19.
You can find more information and advice on the Ministry of Health’s website.
