The continued increase in cases today is a reminder that, as expected, the Omicron variant is spreading in our communities as we have seen in other countries.


We can all play our part to slow the spread of the virus, help protect our most vulnerable people from being infected, and ensure our health system is able to manage extra demand for services.

This means continuing to do the basics well – staying home if unwell, and wearing a mask, physical distancing and scanning in using the NZ COVID Tracer app when you’re out and about.

All masks are effective when worn properly – fitted snug and close to the face – including three-layer fabric and surgical masks.

Anyone with any cold or flu symptoms that could be COVID-19 is asked to get a test and isolate at home until a negative result is returned.

The most common early symptoms of the Omicron variant are a sore or scratchy throat, and a runny nose. Even if you develop a small sniffle, please get a test.

And finally, one of the best steps you can take is getting your booster dose as soon as it is due. Boosters lower your chances of getting very sick and being hospitalised. Being boosted also helps slow the spread of the virus. If you’re over 18 and your booster is due, please get it now.

Yesterday was a record day for boosters, with 66,864 booster doses administered taking the total so far to more than 1.5 million.

As of today, more than 90% of Hawke's Bay’s Māori population have received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Twelve DHB regions now have more than 90% of Māori partially vaccinated.

Waitangi weekend reminder
We are reminding you that if you are going away this Waitangi weekend, you should have plans in place in the event you are identified as a close contact, get COVID-19 symptoms, or find out you have COVID-19.

You are likely to need to self-isolate wherever you become a close contact or test positive, so there may be extra costs involved in paying for additional accommodation and changing your travel plans.
