There are no new cases of COVID-19 to report today in New Zealand. There are no new cases that are in managed isolation. There are no new cases in the community today.
“A note that while our case numbers are low, the pandemic continues overseas and is particularly active in many countries that New Zealanders are returning home from,” said Director of Public Health Dr Caroline McElnay.
“As we will continue to see imported cases of COVID-19 it’s timely to highlight our advice to New Zealanders currently overseas that there are some things they can do to reduce the risk of bringing COVID-19 back with them.”
In the 14 days prior to departure, people thinking about returning to New Zealand should consider:
* Avoiding going to parties, social gatherings, or crowded places
* Avoiding contact with people who have COVID-19 or who have been in contact with cases
* Staying home as much as possible to limit exposure to other people

“Doing these things will help reduce the risk of being exposed to COVID-19 then bringing it home with you. People should also be aware of symptoms and get a test if any develop,” said Director of Public Health Dr Caroline McElnay.
