Covid-19 Red Light
Stay at home if you are sick
If you have cold or flu symptoms you should stay home, and call your doctor or Healthline on 0800 358 5453 for advice about getting tested.
These symptoms include:
a high temperature of at least 38°C
shortness of breath
sneezing and runny nose
temporary loss of smell.
If you have any of these symptoms it doesn’t necessarily mean you have COVID-19. The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as colds and flu.
To prevent infection we recommend getting fully vaccinated plus a booster shot, as well as frequently checking Ministry of Health locations of interest.
