The Ministry of Health has published locations of interest for people who may be ‘casual contacts’ of Covid-19 cases in the community.

While risk from these locations is most often very low, the MoH said, casual contacts are asked to monitor their health and get medical advice from their GP or Healthline if they become unwell.

For contact tracing purposes, anyone who attended one of the locations listed here during the relevant time-frames is considered to be a Covid-19 ‘casual contact’ with a low risk of exposure.

If you were at one of these locations during the relevant time-frame, please take the following steps over the next 14 days:

  • immediately contact Healthline on 0800 358 5453 if you feel unwell or start to develop COVID-19 symptoms
  • stay at home if you are unwell
  • ensure you wash your hands regularly with soap and water, or with hand sanitiser.

Please note you are not required to start self-isolating unless you feel unwell or start to develop Covid-19 symptoms.

NZ Covid Tracer contact alerts

Receiving a contact alert through the NZ Covid Tracer app does not necessarily mean you have been exposed to Covid-19.

If you receive a contact alert, it means you have used the app to check into a location at around the same time as a confirmed or probable case of Covid-19, and that contact tracers consider there may have been a risk of exposure.

A contact alert is a simple way of making you aware of this risk. However, you might not have come into close contact with the person, and if you did, it might not have been for long enough to present a significant risk of exposure.

You are not required to start self-isolating after you receive a contact alert. However, if you feel unwell or start to develop Covid-19 symptoms, you should immediately contact Healthline on 0800 358 5453.

Contact tracers will get in touch with you directly if you are identified through the contact tracing process as having a higher risk of exposure to Covid-19, for example if you were seated in close proximity to the confirmed case.
