As at 06 February 2020 there are no confirmed cases of novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in New Zealand.
Travelled from China or transited via China?
If you have travelled to mainland China in the last two weeks, you must stay home in self-isolation for 14 days – this means not leaving home, not going to any public places. DO NOT come to the Medical Centre, instead please call us 09 834 600 ext 2 to speak to a Nurse for advice.
Close Contact with a symptomatic confirmed case of 2019-nCoV?
If you have had close contact* with a confirmed case of Coronavirus, you must self-isolate at home for 14 days to prevent further spread of the virus.

How Do I Protect Myself and Others?
General advice to help prevent the spread of respiratory illness applies. Please follow basic hygiene techniques like thorough hand washing and coughing/sneezing into your arm or a tissue (to cover mouth and nose) to help prevent the spread of illness.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) have updated their travel advisory and now recommend that New Zealanders do not travel to any part of mainland China.
In order to reduce the chances of 2019-nCoV spreading within New Zealand, additional border measures have been implemented from 2 February 2020. These measures will deny entry to New Zealand for anyone who has left or transited through mainland China from 2 February 2020, with the exception of:
- New Zealand citizens, permanent residents and their immediate family
- Air crews who have been using appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE).
