Message from Northern Region Health Coordination Centre (NRHCC):

·         We understand that people may be feeling anxious, but it’s important the right people get access to testing.

·         Please only get a test if you have been identified as a close contact, were at a location of interest at the time pinpointed on the Ministry of Health website or have symptoms.

·         The increased demand at our COVID-19 testing sites may mean delays. Our frontliners ask for your patience and empathy, please be kind.

Important note

·  There is a Section 70 notice in place that applies to any person who is a household contact of a person who has attended the locations of interest or who has been classified as a contact.

·  If a person has visited a location of interest, their household contacts will need to isolate at home until the person has received a negative day 5 test or until after an earlier negative test, if contact between the two people has ceased.

Financial support is available for individuals, family/whānau, foreign nationals, and businesses. Please see here.
