COVID19: What you need to know

Unfortunately the team of 5 million has had a set-back with the discovery of community spread of Covid 19. The same measures that got us to the point of elimination before are being used again and we all have a vital part to play.

Auckland where this was first discovered has been moved to Level 3 and the rest of the country Level 2. For more advice, updates and information click on the buttons below. 

Nelson Family Medicine as of 13/8/20:

We are back into a very fluid situation. Everyone here is doing their best to keep up, so we can keep you all safe and deliver our services as well as we possibly can. Some patience and understanding is required. STAY KIND.

What this means:
 While this is a set-back it is not a disaster. The situation can and will be managed and we will all work as hard as we did last time to do so.  
 The Community Testing Centre has re-opened in the same place (the old suburban club Tahunanui Drive where Habitat for Humanity has shifted). You can go straight there for assessment and testing. 
 You can phone us for advice or 0800 358 5453. Phone lines are often overloaded, so you may need to be patient. If you think it is an emergency you should be ringing 111. 
 Wash your hands as if your life depends on it. Use hand sanitiser if you can’t. 
 Cough into the crook of your elbow and stay home if you are sick. 
 Stay at home in your bubble as much as possible and use social distancing when out.
 Use the contract tracing app or record your contacts and movements in other ways. We encourage businesses to download and display QR codes. It is easier to do this than it was. 
 We are offering more phone consultations and these are the only appointments you can book online. Face to Face appointments are made by phoning in.

We will learn more as the current situation develops and unfolds. Please note, we will endeavour to keep all the information regarding COVID19 on our website as up to date and relevant as possible in these unknown times. Your patience and understanding is appreciated.
