RED

All of New Zealand have now moved to Red. Protect yourself and our community by getting boosted, wearing a mask when out and about and reducing contact with others.
Hospital visitors don’t need a COVID-19 Vaccine Pass, but do need to scan in.
See our COVID-19 page for general COVID-19 advice, detailed hospital visiting guidelines and COVID-19 tests.

See www.vaccinatecanterburywestcoast.nz for info on vaccinations.
