COVID-19 Information

Pandemic Planning in Waitaki

New Zealand's Alert Levels are changing. As at Tuesday 22 September, Waitaki is at Alert Level 1​.

Because we provide many of the services that you rely on every day, Waitaki District Council takes the current pandemic risk seriously - this website will help us all get through, together.  ​

What can you do at each Alert Level?

The Government has published a chart showing what people and businesses can and can’t do at each Alert Level.  

Examples to explain these measures can be found on the covid1​​9.govt.nz website. ​​​​​

NZ COVID Tracer app

NZ COVID Tracer helps you protect yourself, your friends, your whānau and your community by enabling faster contact tracing.

NZ COVID Tracer is a Ministry of Health app that allows you to create a digital diary of places you visit by scanning the official QR codes. This gives contact tracers a headstart with identifying anyone who may have been exposed to COVID-19 so we can quickly break the chain of transmission.

You can download the app in the Apple App Store or from Google Play. 

App available in Apple app store                    App available in Google play store

For more information about the NZ COVID Tracer app, please check the Ministry of Health website​
