Covid Care in the Community

Most people who get COVID-19 will have a mild to moderate illness, and will fully recover in their own home. For those who need help, the healthcare system will always be available.

Health navigator is a good website for care information

https://www.healthnavigator.org.nz/health-a-z/c/covid-19-care-package/

We encourage you and your household to have a plan and know what to do if there is a Covid case in your household. It will mean your whānau and community can help each other if needed.

For household contacts

  • For household contacts, after your initial isolation period ends there is a 10-day window during which you will not be re-classified as a household contact if a new household member tests positive, so you would not need to re-isolate.
  • You only need to begin isolating again during these 10 days if you test positive yourself.
  • After that 10-day window the usual rules apply, so if a new household member tests positive, you and all other household contacts (who have not yet become cases themselves) must isolate for 7 days.
