NZ COVID Tracer contact alerts

Receiving a contact alert through the NZ COVID Tracer app does not necessarily mean you have been exposed to COVID-19.

If you receive a contact alert, it means you have used the app to check 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 into close contact with the person, and if you did, it might not have been for long enough to present a significant risk of exposure.

You are not required to start self-isolating after you receive a contact alert. However, if you feel unwell or start to develop COVID-19 symptoms, you should immediately contact Healthline on 0800 358 5453.

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.
