NZ COVID Tracer contact alerts

Receiving a yellow notification as a result of scanning a QR code through the NZ COVID Tracer app means you may have been exposed to COVID-19. A yellow contact alert will tell you if you are a Casual Contact or a Casual Plus Contact and what to do. If there is a “Send my details’ button, this enables you to send your contact details directly to Healthline, who will then call you back with advice about what to do.

If you receive a yellow QR notification via the app, it means you have used the app to scan into a location at around the same time as a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19, and that contact tracers consider there may have been a risk of exposure.

A contact alert is a simple way of making you aware of this risk. However, you might not have come near the person, and if you did, it might not have been for long enough to present a significant risk of exposure.

Contact tracers will get in touch with you directly if you are identified through the contact tracing process as having a higher risk of exposure to COVID-19, for example if you were seated in close proximity to the confirmed case (or are considered a Close Contact).

Guidance for businesses

This document is to support businesses that have been identified as a location of interest following a visit by a confirmed (or probable) COVID-19 case. In most cases, a public health official will call and talk you through what this means for your business, however there may be some occasions (eg, out of hours) when it may not be possible to contact you immediately.

There are financial support options available to businesses, including people who are self-employed, whose employees are awaiting a COVID-19 test or who are asked to self-isolate and are unable to work from home. Eligibility requirements for the COVID-19 Leave Support Scheme have changed from 9 February 2021, with the introduction of the COVID-19 Short Term Absence Payment, so please check the Work and Income website for up-to-date information about which option may be available.
