These simple steps can slow the spread of the virus. To find out more click here

When to stay home - Staying at home if you’re sick is still the best thing you can do to stop any future spread of COVID-19.

Keep track of where you've been - Fast and effective contact tracing is one way we can all work together to prevent any further spread of COVID-19 in New Zealand.

Wash your hands - Washing your hands continues to be one of the easiest ways to keep yourself safe. Wash often. Use soap. 20 seconds. Then dry. This kills the virus by bursting its protective bubble.

Cough or sneeze into your elbow - It will keep the virus off your hands, so you won’t spread it to other people and make them sick too.

Connect with others - Connecting with others is an incredibly powerful way to continue to support each other through the recovery.

Clean surfaces - It’s still important that we stay vigilant with cleaning.
