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.

Please call us to arrange the collection of a RAT test if you are Symptomatic or a Household contact and are a registered patient.
