Aotea is now in Phase Three of the Omicron COVID-19 surge.
Below are the guidelines for those living on island:
- If you think you have COVID-19: Please only make an appointment for testing if you have symptoms: 4290 356 OR 4290 047. Using the rapid antigen tests (RATs) which are available on the Island, means you only need to wait for 15 mins.
- Only people who regard themselves as HOUSEHOLD CONTACTS will need to isolate for 10 days. They will be tested on Day 3 and Day 10.
- Close contacts are not required to isolate. They are to monitor themselves for symptoms and if they develop any then to get a test. We recommend you avoid situations where you may be in contact with someone who is vulnerable.
RATs will be available for purchase from March 2022.
Should your result be positive please would you phone Aotea Health 4290 356 OR 4290 047 so that we can answer any questions that you may have and support you.
