COVID-19 Testing – Important information for our community

Community Testing Centres (CTCs)

Four new CTCs have replaced the community based assessment centres (CBACs) we set up in March and April. 

Even though there are currently no cases of community transmission, everyone who is offered a test should take up that offer.

Testing is an important part of the strategy to detect any community cases of COVID-19 and part of our whole of community approach to combating the pandemic.

Since 22 May, more than 80,000 community tests have been carried out across Auckland – all negative.

The only COVID-19 cases currently in Auckland are people who have recently returned from overseas into managed isolation and quarantine facilities.

If you have symptoms, phone Healthline 0800 358 5453 or your local GP first to see if you need to be tested or not.

Should I get tested?

If you have any of the symptoms of COVID-19, phone Healthline 0800 358 5453 or your local GP to see if you need to be tested or not.

If you are offered a test for COVID-19, please take it. It will help us ensure we don’t have community transmission, and help keep your friends, family and whânau safe.

The symptoms of COVID19 are:

  • Cough

  • Loss of smell

  • Sore throat

  • Fever

  • Runny nose

  • Shortness of breath.

In addition, if the Auckland Regional Public Health Service advises you to be tested you should follow their advice.

The testing of people who have recently returned to New Zealand and are in managed isolation and quarantine facilities is managed separately.

How can I protect my whānau?

Although we don’t have community cases of COVID-19 in Auckland it’s still important to be vigilant.

The same actions that protect you and your whānau/whaanau from COVID-19 will also keep you safe from the flu, colds, and other infectious diseases.

Washing your hands continues to be one of the easiest ways to keep yourself safe. Continue to cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue, clean surfaces, and stay home if you’re sick.
