ORANGE

We are at ORANGE according to the NZ COVID-19 Protection Framework.  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 Vaccine Pass, but must wear a surgical/medical paper mask. Fabric face coverings are no longer acceptable.  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.

Community Services Card = cheaper GP fees

Many general practices charge lower fees if you have a Community Services Card (CSC).

If you have a CSC, the most you will pay at participating health clinics is:

  • $18.50 for an adult standard visit
  • $12.50 for someone 14 to 17 years old, whose parent or caregiver has a CSC

Things to remember
