Covid-19 Symptoms include:

• a new or worsening cough
• a fever of at least 38°C
• shortness of breath
• sore throat
• sneezing and runny nose
• temporary loss of smell.

These symptoms do not necessarily mean you have COVID-19. The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as colds and flu.

Shortness of breath is a sign of possible pneumonia and requires immediate medical attention.

Throughout all Alert levels, everyone must continue to do their bit to keep New Zealand COVID free.

• Stay home if you’re unwell and get tested.
• Wear a mask or face covering on all flights and public transport, including on long-distance bus and train journeys and on most ferries.
• Keep track of where you’ve been - scan QR codes using the NZ COVID Tracer app and enable Bluetooth tracing on your device. Check that you have Bluetooth tracing enabled on the dashboard of the NZ COVID Tracer app. If you don’t, turn it on now. If you aren’t able to use the app, download or request a COVID Tracer booklet, keep a calendar or diary.
• Practice good hygiene (includes washing your hands often and coughing into your elbow)
• Regularly clean high touch surfaces.
