The Golden Rules of Alert Level 1 (from the Government COVID-19 website):
It’s clear that this thing may reappear, so the Government wants us to continue to be careful, and they’ve provided a simple set of common-sense rules for us all to observe as part of our new normal everyday life. These rules are as follows:
1. If you’re sick, stay home. Don’t go to work or school. Don’t socialise.
2. If you have cold or flu symptoms call your doctor or Healthline and make sure you get tested.
3. Wash your hands. Wash your hands. Wash your hands.
4. Sneeze and cough into your elbow, and regularly disinfect shared surfaces.
5. If you are told by health authorities to self-isolate you must do so immediately.
6. If you’re concerned about your wellbeing or have underlying health conditions, work with your GP to understand how best to stay healthy.
7. Keep track of where you’ve been and who you’ve seen to help contact tracing if needed. Use the NZ COVID Tracer app as a handy way of doing this.
8. Businesses should help people keep track of their movements by displaying the Ministry of Health QR Code for contact tracing.
9. Stay vigilant. There is still a global pandemic going on. People and businesses should be prepared to act fast to step up Alert Levels if we have to.
10. People will have had different experiences over the last couple of months. Whatever you’re feeling — it’s okay. Be kind to others. Be kind to yourself
Keeping track of movements and contacts (item 7 above):
The Government is strongly recommending that people continue to keep track of their movements and contacts in case of another outbreak, and the medical experts say that another outbreak is entirely possible.
The Government is encouraging businesses to help customers to keep track of where they have been by displaying the NZ COVID Tracer QR code poster at their entranceway. You can find this easily by going to https://uniteforrecovery.govt.nz/business/get-your-qr-code-poster/
Recording your own movements:
To help you with recording your own travel and contacts, the Government has set up a tracing app called NZ COVID Tracer app, which you can download onto your mobile phone like any other app.
Alternatively, you can just make diary notes. If you’re in the habit of using your Contact Tracing Registers and that’s easy, you can just keep doing that.
