COVID-19 messages encourage all New Zealanders to make a few easy things our automatic ‘always’ behaviours. These behaviours are the most effective things we can do to protect ourselves and others from the spread of COVID-19.
Now that COVID-19 has been declared a global pandemic the All of Government (AoG) response has kicked in to centralise the public information work. This means the focus is not just on health, but on all areas eg, border, economics and gatherings, etc.
In a united approach, there is a new website with everything you need to know about COVID-19 in one place. This is now the go-to place for COVID-19: covid19.govt.nz. Resources are now available at covid19.govt.nz/help-and-advice/resources/
A huge thanks who have shared the initial messaging that got people washing their hands with soap and water often and using cough and sneeze etiquette. Messaging has expanded to include self-isolation, staying home if you’re sick, and being kind to others through this. Together we can slow the spread.
