COVID-19 Updates for Southland and Otago

Keeping you up to date on the Southern status

The Southern health system at Alert Level 4

Thank you to everyone who is helping fight the spread of COVID-19 by staying home.

New Zealand is at Alert Level 4. This means you will experience changes in the health system as we   enable the community to fulfil the important lockdown, while providing care to our sickest and most vulnerable people.

We understand this is a difficult and uncertain time, but please know that we are working through these with the safety and well-being of our patients, staff and our entire community in mind. Our Southern DHB Emergency Coordination Centre has been activated and is working with the Ministry of Health, other DHBs, and our partners in primary and community care to ensure a coordinated, timely and effective response.  

Thank you for your support in staying by home, and helping stop COVID-19 in its tracks.
