COVID-19 Testing – Important information for our community

The Team from Counties Manukau Health

Because there is no community spread in Auckland, the people in our community who most need to be tested are those who have symptoms and are at higher risk of contracting COVID-19.

You are at higher risk if in the 14 days before your symptoms started:
● You were in contact with a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19
● OR you travelled overseas
● OR you had direct contact with a person who has travelled overseas within the past 14 days (eg Customs and Immigration staff, staff at quarantine/isolation facilities)
● OR you worked on an international aircraft or shipping vessel
● OR you cleaned at an international airport or maritime port in areas/conveniences visited by international arrivals

How can I protect my whaanau?
Although we don’t have community cases of COVID-19 in Auckland it’s still important to be vigilant.

The same actions that protect you and your whaanau from COVID-19 will also keep you safe from the flu, colds, and other infectious diseases. Washing your hands continues to be one of the easiest ways to keep yourself safe. Continue to cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue, clean surfaces, and stay home if you’re sick.

Coronavirus: Auckland remaining at alert level 3 until August 26

The Team Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Have you heard the news? Auckland will remain in level 3, while the rest of the country will remain at level 2 until midnight Wednesday, August 26 – an additional 12 days.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the approach is “short, but precautionary”. Extending the restrictions for an additional 12 days is the same length of the virus’ incubation period, director-general of health Dr Ashley Bloomfield said.
