Update: 29th June 2021
Kia ora whānau,
Greater Wellington will re-join the rest of New Zealand at Alert Level 1 at 11:59pm tonight, Tuesday 29 June.
Health officials are confident that if COVID-19 was in the Wellington community, it would have been found by now.
Wellingtonians should remain vigilant until a full 14 days has passed since the Sydney case left our shores. This will be 5 July. Alert Level 1 does not mean "Alert Level None".
Remember to keep track of where you've been. If you're feeling unwell, it's important to stay home and get a test.
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 like 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.
Some people may have less common symptoms such as only:
- muscle pain
- nausea and vomiting
- confusion and irritability.
If you have any of these symptoms, contact your doctor, Healthline or your iwi health provider.
