COVID-19 Southern Updates

The Southern health system is operating under the current phase of New Zealand's COVID-19 response

New Zealand’s COVID-19 Protection Framework (traffic lights) has ended. With case numbers low, most COVID-19 rules were removed on 13 September 2022.

To everyone who lives in our district or are planning to come here please get vaccinated, get tested if are sick, and plan ahead. Protect yourself and wear a mask, and please protect our community and health care system.

If people get sick with COVID-19, most will be cared for at home with support from Primary Care teams. If you need to go to hospital we plan to care for most COVID-19 patients at Dunedin Hospital where there is ICU support available. However, all hospitals are planning to care for patients who have COVID -19.
