Alert Level update
|UPDATE: MARCH 12, 2021|
|All of New Zealand is at Alert Level 1. |
WHAT WE ALL NEED TO DO TO KEEP SAFE:
- Stay home if you're sick: If you have cold or flu symptoms, stay home and call Healthline or your doctor about a free COVID-19 test.
- Use the NZ COVID Tracer app: Scan QR codes everywhere you go, and turn on Bluetooth tracing. The more we scan the safer we'll be.
- Practise good hygiene: Wash your hands with soap. Cough or sneeze into your elbow. Clean surfaces.
Face coverings must be worn on public transport at Alert Levels 1 and 2, until further notice. Everyone must all play their part – we need to “cover for each other”.
For more information about what measures you need to take to keep safe go to the New Zealand Government COVID-19 website.

Emergency Operations Centre signs off
After 68 days, our Southern Waikato Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) was stood down in June 2020.
The EOC was a joint effort by Taupō District Council, South Waikato District Council, Waipa District Council, Otorohonga District Council, and Waitomo District Council to help support our communities in the wake of COVID-19.
