E rere tōtika ana aku mihi ki ngā whatu mauri o ngā tihi whakarongo kōrero, ki ngā paritū kārangaranga, ki ngā tai aumihi, ki ngā awa whakatere taniwha.
Tēnā tātou katoa,
There is one new case of COVID-19 in the community linked to the existing Tāmaki Makaurau cases.
This latest case (Case G) is a household contact of Cases D, E and F which we announced on Wednesday. This person had previously returned a negative test, taken on Monday 15 February and has been isolating at home. They are currently in the process of transferring to the Tāmaki quarantine facility.
There is one additional member of this household who has returned a negative test result but is also being transferred to quarantine.
I want to mihi to these people and our whānau in Tāmaki who have been working with us to keep COVID-19 out of our communities.
As we head into the weekend, here are some updates for you and your whānau.
Wearing face masks and coverings is now compulsory
At Alert Level 1 and 2 whānau are now legally required to wear a face mask or covering on all public transport throughout Aotearoa.
Face coverings must also be worn:
• on domestic flights throughout New Zealand;
• ferries (except for the larger Cook Strait ferries) and
• by Auckland taxi and ride-share drivers — while it’s not compulsory for passengers to wear them, we strongly encourage them to.
Whānau are encouraged to wear a face mask or covering in situations where physical distancing is not possible, for example in shops and in crowded places.
Tamariki under 12 are exempt from wearing a face mask or covering.
I want to encourage whānau everywhere to do the right thing and work together to encourage responsible use of masks and face coverings.
Testing continues – check out the locations of interest
We are still encouraging whānau to review the locations of interest to check if they need to get tested. We will continue to update this page and keep whānau informed.
Investigations continue into the three community cases announced on Wednesday, including further interviews with contact tracing staff. As a result, a potential increase in the number of locations of interest, close and casual plus contacts is not unexpected.
Information on where to get a test is also available on the Healthpoint website which has all the testing locations and hours supplied by DHBs.
Initial roll-out of COVID-19 vaccinations to commence this weekend
The first COVID-19 vaccine is now safely in storage at our ultra-low temperature facility and we are on track to begin the vaccine rollout this weekend.
The initial roll-out is for all border and MIQ kaimahi covered by the current Required Testing Order (2020) and those they live with.
COVID-19 vaccinations are being made available to border and MIQ kaimahi as a means of added protection against the risk they encounter as part of their workplace duties. We strongly encourage vaccination to protect them and the people they live with.
The close, household and personal contacts they live with will be vaccinated as part of the initial roll-out, after border and MIQ kaimahi have had their first dose. This includes anyone who usually lives with the border and MIQ kaimahi.
I want to thank everybody across the health and disability sector that have worked hard to get us to this monumental point in our fight against COVID-19. E kore e mutu ngā mihi.
Staying safe this weekend
Whānau can keep enjoying the warmth of Hine Raumati if we all maintain our tikanga hauora and relevant Alert Level rules. These will protect our communities and keep the virus in check:
· Stay home if you’re feeling māuiui and call Healthline to get advice about a COVID-19 test
· Wash your hands
· Scan QR codes
· Turn on Bluetooth tracing on the NZ COVID Tracer app
· Wear a face covering on public transport, domestic flights, and in situations where physical distancing is not possible, like in shops.
Businesses also have an important role to play:
· Put up plenty of QR code posters in your shop/café/restaurant/bar
· Invite your customers to scan in as they go in
· Encourage everyone to wash or sanitise their hands.
For more information on COVID-19, visit the Ministry of Health website or the Unite Against COVID website.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or my team at: email@example.com
Please can you help:
1. Ensure your networks know about these COVID-19 updates.
2. Share information with your local networks to ensure our whānau know the updated advice and how to keep themselves safe.
Kia Mataara Unite against COVID.

There are some simple actions you should take if travelling over the upcoming Waitangi
New Zealand remains at Alert Level 1. We have no evidence of community transmission.
Currently there are no restrictions on events. We can enjoy these safely if we all play our
part. However, some of our communities are more at risk from COVID-19 than others and
we all need to work together to ensure our whānau across Aotearoa can enjoy this time in a
way that keeps us all safe.
Be kind while travelling – COVID-19 affects us all differently. Those around you or at your
destination may be more at risk. Check in with your hosts before you leave and do your bit
to keep all our communities safe.
If you're sick, stay home and do not travel. If you become unwell while travelling, call
Healthline on 0800 358 5453 straightway for advice - do not wait until you get home.
If you're advised to get a test, do so from wherever you are in the country. Do not wait until
you get home to get a test. Remember testing is free and available every day of the week.
Keep track of your travel – use the NZ COVID Tracer app with Bluetooth on.
Travel safely - wash your hands well and often, think about whether you can limit the
number of stops along your journey, take face coverings with you and wear them whenever
you can’t keep your distance from people you don’t know.
Remember there are some places where face coverings must be worn:
• on all public transport to, from and through Auckland — including on long-distance
bus and train journeys, as well as Auckland ferries
• on domestic flights throughout New Zealand
• by Auckland taxi and ride-share drivers — while it’s not compulsory for passengers
to wear them, we strongly encourage you to.
Kia Mataara Unite against COVID.
