Covid-19 Daily Updates

Aug 11, 2020

Updated 20 October 2020 – PLEASE READ FULL TEXT
All of New Zealand is at Alert Level 1.  

There is 1 new case today. There are 33 active cases of COVID-19 in New Zealand (none in hospital), with a total of 1,531 confirmed cases since Covid-19 appeared and 25 deaths.

While it is not mandatory to wear a mask on public transport under Alert Level 1, it is encouraged.
We should all continue to be vigilant, sign into places we go using the NZ COVID Tracer app or keep a record, and maintain good hygiene practices. If unwell, stay at home and get a test.


  • All businesses and services (including music teachers with their own studios or those teaching pupils in their own homes) must display a NZ COVID Tracer QR code for their business at all entry points. It must be in either a prominent place or near main entrances. Get your QR poster here. You will also need to have a manual sign in register for those people without smart phones or those who choose not to use the tracer app. This is a mandatory requirement under all alert levels.
 A reminder of the alert levels and what they mean can be found here. 
 If you have not already done so, it is recommended that you download the Covid tracer application from this site. 
If your phone does not have this capability or you prefer not to use this then you must record your movements and who you come into contact with in detail in a diary. If you operate a business or service, you MUST get and display your QR code poster (see above).
Thank you for helping to keep our communities safe.
