Remaining Covid-19 requirements removed


17 August 2023

The Government announced this week that it has removed the last remaining mandatory COVID-19 public health requirements for a 7-day isolation period for people testing positive for COVID-19, along with the mandatory wearing of face masks for visitors to healthcare and disability facilities, will be removed. 

This decision does not mean COVID-19 has disappeared. COVID-19 remains active in the community.

The wearing of facemasks by visitors in healthcare and disability settings and continuing to isolate if positive for COVID-19 are still being strongly recommended. 

New Zealand has a good supply of antiviral medicines, and people with a high risk of severe illness from COVID-19 will continue to be eligible for treatment with antivirals.

Guidance from Te Whatu Ora was released following the changes.
