Stay at home if you're sick!

Stay at home if you're sick!

A reminder that we are still at Alert Level 1 and staying at home if you’re sick is still the best thing you can do to stop any future spread of COVID-19. This includes runny noses and coughs.

We have detailed below information taken from the New Zealand government's COVID-19 advice website:

If you have cold or flu symptoms you should stay home, and call your doctor or Healthline on 0800 358 5453 for advice about getting tested.

These symptoms include:

  • a cough
  • a high temperature of at least 38°C
  • shortness of breath
  • sore throat
  • sneezing and runny nose
  • temporary loss of smell.

If you have any of these symptoms it doesn’t necessarily mean you have COVID-19. The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as colds and flu.
