From today everyone aged 12 and over must keep a record of where they have been.

Keeping track using the NZ COVID Tracer app is the best way to do this. The faster we can trace contacts, the quicker people isolate, the quicker we stop the spread of COVID-19, keeping ourselves, our whānau and our community safe.

For those people that cannot use the NZ COVID Tracer app, we have a COVID-19 Contact Tracker booklet as an alternative. This helps those who can’t access a smartphone or may not be adept at QR code scanning. In the booklet you can write details about where you’ve been and who you’ve seen.
