Information for our tenants about COVID-19.

As of 11:59pm Monday 12 September, the COVID-19 Protection Framework ended.

Follow Government advice

You need to wear a mask if you’re visiting a health service or rest home.

If you have COVID-19 you need to self-isolate for 7 days. Your household contacts do not need to self-isolate.

It’s a good idea to keep up healthy habits, to continue to protect yourself and whānau from illness and from COVID-19.

Healthy habits

  • Stay home if you’re sick, don’t go to work or school, and take a rapid antigen test (RAT) if you have a cold, flu, or COVID-19 symptoms. Call your doctor or Healthline  on 0800 358 5453 to get advice about being tested.
  • Stay up to date with your vaccinations.
  • Wash your hands or use hand sanitiser. 
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow.
  • Clean or disinfect shared surfaces regularly.
  • Open windows to increase fresh air flow inside.
  • Face masks can help reduce the spread of COVID-19. They are useful in poorly ventilated indoor areas and when you’re around people you don’t know.
