Testing positive for COVID-19
Testing positive for COVID-19 – Ki te pāngia koe e te KOWHEORI-19
Most people who get COVID-19 will have mild to moderate symptoms, similar to other common viruses.
The majority of people will be able to manage their symptoms at home while isolating with some rest, fluids and paracetamol.
if you are disabled and have tested positive for Covid in Hamilton, Kapiti, Hawkes Bay, Wellington, or Lower Hutt we can support you with localised information on supports in your area.
In an emergency call 111
If you or a family member become very unwell or has difficulty breathing, severe chest pain or discomfort, fainting or become unconscious, call 111 immediately. Let them know you are isolating with COVID-19. There is no cost to call an ambulance when you have COVID-19
Local welfare and manaaki support are available throughout New Zealand.
