Guidance for Household Contacts

It is important that you isolate away from other people.  

You will need to have a COVID-19 test on Days 3 and 10 of the isolation period.  Test outside these days if symptoms develop.

Release from isolation:  release on Day 11,  provided you have a negative test result from your Day 10 Covid-19 test, so long as you have no new or worsening symptoms.

Please see further guidance about close contacts here  Guidance for Household Contacts

 

 

If you have concerns that this advice does not cover please call us and speak to a nurse.  03 389 9385.

We expect the Omicron variant to be a mild illness for the majority of people.  This is particularly true if you are fully vaccinated.  

If you are high risk as classified as by other health conditions we would expect to be in contact with you routinely to check in on you.  

Its a good idea to have a plan ready in advance, for yourself and whanau, of what to do when someone tests positive or a close contact of covid-19.  Please see here for advice to follow.
